Alvin Greene’s Action-Figure Dream Has Been Realized, Sort Of


When Alvin Greene first suggested that there could someday be an action figure in his likeness, people laughed. Such is the price that visionaries pay for dreaming big. But just one week later, Greene’s dream has become a reality. Behold! An actual photo of the first ever Alvin Greene … action-figure-type thing! Sure, it’s not rolling off of assembly lines just yet, and it won’t do anything to revitalize the economy. And yeah, it’s only a promotion that the minor league Charleston RiverDogs baseball team is giving away to the first 1,000 people who show up to its game on Saturday night. And it’s really just a photo of Alvin Greene’s face taped onto a miniature male Statue of Liberty figurine. But all dreams have to start somewhere.
