Al the Octopus

I went to a game and saw a stuffed Al the Octopus. It was around 20 to 30 dollars. Are these still available??? My wife loved it,but didn't want to spend the money on it. I wanted to get it for her as a "Tax Season" present to stick in her basket I make as she finishes up this crazy time of year. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I imagine you can find him at Hockeytown Authentics. I have a couple little ones that I got a few years ago, and they hang on my bookshelves in the living room.

Do they have a website I can order them from? Not real close being in the Cleveland area and am not sure I will be able to make it for a playoff game. Should have bought it when I saw it.

Well there were several on the ice last night. But of course it looked like a Wings home game anyway.

I've seen people take small ones and adapt them to like a baseball cap. Why not - get creative!

They've got little headbands that have an Al on them, and two of the legs are the headband thingy that holds it on your head. Those can really irritate drunk fans sitting behind you though.
