Creepy figurines Tuesday night was Roy Halladay bobblehead night at Citizens Bank Park, coincidentally corresponding with a Halladay start. Before the game, Shane Victorino, David Herndon, and Juan Castro proudly displayed Halladay bobbleheads in their lockers. All things considered, the Halladay bobble bears a decent enough resemblance to the real Halladay. The beard is there. But he looks to be cracking a bit of a smile, which rarely ever happens on the mound. There have been bobbleheads that looked far, far worse.

CAME ACROSS a story that the Milwaukee Brewers were having a bobblehead night for Hank. Being a bobblehead collector, I naturally thought "Milwaukee . . . Hank . . . How cool is that? A bobblehead night for Hank Aaron. " Wrong! Hank is a dog that wandered into Maryvale Baseball Park, the Brewers' spring-training site in Phoenix, last month and soon after was taken to the vet by Brewers staff members. After Hank was treated for lacerations on his underside, staffers bought him a bed, set him up in the office and took turns taking him home at night.

LET'S HOPE Roy Halladay doesn't try to imitate the stance of the bobblehead featured on MLB.com on Thursday.   According to the site, the figurine in the photo was never really offered. The site used the wrong photo of the item, taken from a prototype. But that won't stop us from poking fun at the flawed bobblehead. First off, Halladay is righthanded and his glove is on the wrong hand. Also, the ball is in his left hand, but he's using a left-leg kick. Finally, the beard is light brown, but the hair on its head is black.

Baseball news from a somewhat unlikely source: Villanova football coach Andy Talley tweeted that former Wildcats star receiver Matt Szczur is being called up from triple-A Iowa to the Chicago Cubs. Besides Talley's tweet, multiple reports Saturday confirmed that the 25-year-old Lower Cape May grad is on his way to the bigs. Szczur, now an outfielder with speed (30 stolen bases with Iowa) and a good glove but weakish bat (.261) could make his major-league debut Sunday against the New York Mets at Citi Field.

WHAT DO I want with a Hunter Pence bobblehead doll? This is not a rhetorical question. I am asking it directly to my Shane Victorino bobblehead figure sitting on the shelf right opposite me. He shrugs his shoulders. When the Phillies handed out Pence figurines the other night at the Park, it made me wonder why they would honor a player now in another club's uniform. Would the San Francisco Giants - which Pence now calls home - have handed out Willie Mays bobbleheads after he was traded to the Mets?

Alex Burrows and Daniel and Henrik Sedin combined for 10 points in the host Vancouver Canucks' 6-2 thrashing of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. Burrows scored two goals, Daniel Sedin had a goal and three assists, and twin brother Henrik added four assists. The Sedins' outburst came after both had gone three games without a point.   Stamkos scores Steven Stamkos scored his NHL-leading 40th goal of the season and the host Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Washington Capitals, 2-1. The 22-year old Stamkos became the first Tampa Bay player to have three consecutive seasons of at least 40 goals when he scored 1 minute, 50 seconds into the second period.

Lincecum chases a weighty stat Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants is quietly pursuing one of pitching's magic numbers - 300 strikeouts in a season. The number has been reached only 33 times since 1901, and only five pitchers have done it since 1980. The last to get there were those old war horses Randy Johnson (334) and Curt Schilling (316), in 2002. The only others to reach 300 Ks in a season since 1980 were Pedro Martinez, Mike Scott and Nolan Ryan. Lincecum, who shut out the Phillies, 2-0, on Saturday, has 191 strikeouts to go with a 12-3 record and a 2.18 ERA and could win his second straight Cy Young Award.

Thaddeus Young said he was not 100 percent in Friday's 89-72 win over the Charlotte Bobcats, but it was hard to believe it by the performance of the fifth-year 76ers forward. During Wednesday's 97-90 overtime loss to the New Jersey Nets, Young suffered a lower back injury but did return to the game. On Friday he had 10 points, shot 5 for 7 from the field, and had four rebounds and no turnovers in just over 24 minutes. "It still bothers me and I am not completely 100 percent, but I will go out there, keep playing and keep getting treatment and hopefully it will get better as we progress and time goes on," Young said before Saturday's game at the Wells Fargo Center against the Detroit Pistons.

Next week, a mad rush will ensue as the Phillies put single-game tickets on sale. A few desirable dates, like Red Sox games and fireworks nights, could sell out quickly, and others could see supplies dwindle to less desirable seats. By acting or planning now, fans might avoid disappointment come Feb. 13. That's because, thanks to new offerings added Friday, every game is already available through plans with as few as three or six games, according to John Weber, the club's director of sales and ticket operations.

The man who may be the most popular 76er of the last 25 years made a special appearance at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night. There was an Allen Iverson bobblehead giveaway, and the beloved former guard showed up for his night. Iverson appeared on the court for about 30 seconds between the player introductions and opening tipoff. And it was like old times. The crowd gave him a deafening standing ovation. Dressed in a throwback red and gray Phillies jacket and cap, black sunglasses, and large gold chains, he waved to the crowd from center court.

Former 76ers guard Allen Iverson is expected to be at Saturday's game at the Wells Fargo Center when the Sixers host the Charlotte Bobcats at 8 p.m. Iverson is scheduled to be introduced on the court before the game, and fans will receive an Iverson bobblehead. Iverson led the Sixers to the 2001 NBA Finals and is one of the franchise's all-time great players. He is the franchise leader in 40-point games (76) and three-pointers (885) and is second behind Hal Greer in points (19,931)

SALES OF PHILLIES tickets are lagging well behind the pace of the last few seasons. But nobody's panicking at Citizens Bank Park, according to John Weber, vice president for sales and ticket operations. And fans should see this as an opportunity - with seats available for every game, he said. Last year, five games - the Red Sox games, two bobblehead giveaway dates, and the game where kids can run the bases - were gone by mid-February, less than a week after the Phillies put single-game tickets on sale.

Because we are a Philly-based entity, Touch 'Em All generally doesn't tout Chipper Jones' career accomplishments on this his farewell season, or any season for that matter. But sometimes you have to give the devil his due, and on Thursday night at Turner Field, Larry was pretty good: He slammed two homers on what would be the final Chipper Jones Bobblehead Day of his career, hitting some milestones along the way. The 40-year-old Jones finished the night 2 for 4 with two home runs and three RBIs in the Braves' 6-0 win over the Padres.

GETTYSBURG - Bobblehead dolls of the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln have been pulled from sale at the Gettysburg National Military Park visitor center bookstore, officials said Tuesday. The dolls of John Wilkes Booth with a handgun were removed from shelves Saturday, a day after a reporter for Hanover's Evening Sun newspaper asked about them. "On rare occasions, there's an item that might cause concern, and obviously the bobbleheads appeared to be doing that," Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil said Tuesday.
