fresno_famous_web_header_nfxmxc2xWell, it’s been decided: Robin Lopezeeked out a final win in the Fresno Grizzlies Fresno Famous (TM, The Fresno Bee) Bobblehead tournament.

Eeeked … he beat former NFL dance-icon Ickey Woods by more than 1,000 votes.

For those who weren’t following, the tournament pitted 64 Fresno celebrities (both real and pseudo) in an online vote-off. The winner gets a bobblehead version of themselves. Well, Grizzlies fans get the bobbleheads, which will be handed out during to the first 1,500 people through the gate Aug. 22. For the winner, it’s more of an honor thing. And to be fair, he did beat out the Mayor, William Saroyan and Jerry Tarkanian.

Lopez, a graduate of San Joaquin Memorial High School, plays center for the Portland Trail Blazers. To capture the win, he defeated Woods, plus Grizzlies mascot Parker, CBS47/KSEE24 Sports Director Andrew Marden, MLB Network host Heidi Watney, former Olympic boxer Jenifer Alcorn and KMPH Great Day anchor Kopi Sotiropulos (who I figured a shoe-in).

Lopez was all over Twitter drumming up votes in the final round.

The Grizzlies were on Twitter too, announcing the win.

It wasn’t the win I expected and certainly not the win I wanted, but, hey it was a fun couple weeks.
