When Gagne came in to close a game, the Guns n Roses song "Welcome to the Jungle" was played as he came out of the bullpen. The phrase "Game Over" was used whenever he came in as well. The Dodgers marketed "Game Over" and Gagne's image like crazy.
Of course his name was mentioned in the Mitchell Report, which claimed he used performance enhancing drugs. Gagne tried to make a comeback earlier this year as a non-roster invitee to spring training with the Dodgers.

Another one of the bobblehead's features was that white bulid up on Gagne's unwashed hat. Nasty!
I know Eric Gagne was named in the Mitchell Report and his name will always be linked to PED's, but he gave Dodger fans a lot of excitement for three seasons. He also gave Dodger fans a reason to stay until the 9th inning. It was really fun watching him pitch.
Gagne finished his career with a 33-26 record, a 3.47 ERA and 187 saves.
