Marshall University Fan and His Cabbage Patch Kid
John Hall has been attending Marshall University Football games with his Cabbage Patch Kid “Barber” doll since 1985. A fan of College Football Hall of Fame inductee, Mike Barber, Hall made him a football helmet and made him a green jersey with his namesake’s number. Often teased about his “doll”, Hall proudly tells everyone that he has been bringing his good luck charm to all the games — celebrations as well as defeats – since 1985. He shares details with writer Beth Hendricks of The Herald-Dispatch. http://www.herald-dispatch.com/sports/marshall/x1754119000/Print-E-paper-exclusive-Herd-fan-has-unique-tradition?i=0.
