Red Wings announce Uncle Phil bobblehead

Local Sports

The Red Wings announced Thursday that fans can take the town’s best known smiling face this summer. 

An Uncle Phil bobblehead will be available to fans for the July 24th game. That’s a Wednesday night against Norfolk. 

Phil Salamone is the affable greeter seen at many Rochester events, including the Lilac Fest and Red Wing games. 

The bobblehead will even come with an “Uncle Phil” track. Salamone recorded three short phrases, including his frequently used “Uncle Phil loves you!”

It may be one of the Red Wings’ best promotions ever.
