Ryan Howard Garden Gnome Version 2 (Plus Extra Bonus Life-sized Version)

Jan 31, 2011, 4:34 PM EDT

Remember that minor controversy over the Reading Phillies giveaway of a Ryan Howard garden gnome last season? Well, it was such a hit with fans that they're doing it again. With an added twist.

From the R-Phils website:

Ryan Howard Garden Gnome Version # 2 features Ryan in his black R-Phils uniform. And, that’s not all, as Ryan Howard Garden Gnome night is bigger & better than ever – literally. On Opening Night, one lucky R-Phils fan will win a Life-Size Ryan Howard Garden Gnome, courtesy of Fromm Electric Supply Corp. All fans that enter on Opening Night will receive a free entry form, and one lucky fan will take home this one-of-a kind Life-Size Ryan Howard Garden Gnome estimated to be 550 pounds!

Clearly the gnome version of Ryan Howard is not as big a fan of Subway $5 footlongs.

(Apologies for awful joke. We all know gnomes have a penchant for "roots, especially starchy tubers which they often cultivate" such as carrots, turnips, parsnips, radishes, and potatoes. Not Subway subs. Nobody likes those.)
