Wally is the mascot of the Boston Red Sox.
Fenway Park, where the Red Sox play, is well known for the big green wall that is known as the Green Monster. Wally (get it?) is a green monster named after the wall.
Jerry Remy travels with a mine 6” Wally. Remy - AKA the RemDawg - sells these Wally dolls on his site, theremyreport.com, which he personally autographs before packing one up and sending it to your home for the perfectly reasonable price of $14.95.
I, of course, had to have my own Wally doll.
Wally is very well made. He is sort of a bean bag doll and he comes wearing his favorite teams apparel, including hat.
My Wally doll is about 4 years old and a bit dusty. He sits in his very own Adirondack chair (I also purchased this on theremyreport.com for $24.95) on top of my television set. When the Red Sox games are going well he sits in his chair properly, on his behind. When our games are going no so grand, he stands on his head in the chair, rallying for the team.
I absolutely love my Wally and cannot watch a game without him! Having him sitting on top of my television year round may seem a bit odd to some, but it is comforting, especially in the later part of the off season when I am desperately hoping to see a game… any game!
Plus he’s cute!
Go Red Sox!
