CLEVELAND — Unless you lived under a rock, you know about the Cleveland Browns Rally Possum, a marsupial many fans considered a good luck charm that helped end the team’s historic losing streak during the 2018-2019 season. Now with another season in the books, The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum announced the creation of a bobblehead commemorating the opossum.

It all started when a Painseville man, who instantly became an internet sensation, corralled an opossum during the Browns vs. Jets game in September 2018.

Minutes after cell phone video captured him plucking the opossum was posted to Instagram, the video had amassed hundreds of thousands of views.

The Browns may have won the game, but Rally Possum won the internet.

So what happened to this mythical creature of gridiron legend after its capture and cardboard incarceration? It was released humanely outside the FirstEnergy Stadium, according to a tweet from Rob McBurnett, senior communications manager for the Browns. "It's quite possom-ble it reached one of the @Browns @budlight Victory Fridges in time to celebrate the win #NYJvsCLE ," he tweeted.

The bobblehead features the possum decked out in a Cleveland Browns jersey sitting on a Browns helmet base. The Cleveland Browns Rally Possum is available at the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and in the museum’s online store.

"We’re excited to be giving Browns fans the opportunity to get this really unique bobblehead featuring the Rally Possum,” said Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, in a news release. "This will be a must-have bobblehead for any Browns fan, and hopefully it will bring the team some good luck next season.”
