February 12, 2013 - ECHL (ECHL) - Bakersfield Condors
CONDORSTOWN, Calif. - The internationally-known Bakersfield Condors return to Dignity Health Home Ice at Rabobank Arena for two exciting games this weekend against the Colorado Eagles. Friday night, the team will give away 2,000 Rope Necklaces (just like the pros wear!) while the Dark Knight himself, Batman, will be in the house on Saturday for pictures.
Look just like some of the best professionals in the game on Friday as the first 2,000 children, 12 and under, will receive Condors Rope Necklaces presented by La Campesina 92.5 FM. This is a first-ever giveaway in Condorstown history. Look like World Series champion Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants or even former Bakersfield superstar Josh Hamilton of the Los Angeles Angels.
Friday is a Wells Fargo Condors Kids Club Night with members receiving a free lower level ticket to the game. If your child is not signed up, and we don't know why they wouldn't be, click here for more information.
The Caped Crusader will take the night off from fighting crime in Gotham City and swoops into Condorstown on Saturday presented by La Caliente 96.9 FM. Take your pictures in the Condors photo booth with the Dark Knight himself during pre-game and in both intermissions.
Saturday is the first of four SC Architect "B" Better Bakersfield nights. Students who present their report card showing a GPA of a "B" (3.0) or better at the box office will receive half-price tickets anywhere in the arena. The box office opens at 10am Monday-Saturday. For more information, call the Condors office at 324-PUCK (7825).
Come see the Tevis Jr. High Music Department, consisting of their choir, band, and orchestra perform Saturday's National Anthem as a result of their excellent fundraiser. They will also perform during the first intermission.

After the games, head on up to the Bakersfield Marriott Autograph Booth, located on the north end of the concourse near the main doors to meet some of your favorite Condors players. On Friday, F Jacob Lagace and D Ryan Annesley will sign for fans while on Saturday F Scott Freeman and F Jake Morley will man the booth.
Both games start at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. (5:45 p.m. for season ticket holders).
REAL CONDOR STEALS THE SHOW!
All we wanted was to have the condor sit on its custom Condors perch at center ice during the anthem. But before Queen Victoria's one minute and forty second appearance in Condorstown was complete, it ended up being legendary.
At over 600,000 views and counting, her appearance has been highlighted on multiple ESPN shows, Yahoo!, NHL.com, CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, ABC's Good Morning America, NBC's The Today Show and literally hundreds of other websites, TV stations and newspapers in over 160 countries.
Queen Victoria was brought to Condorstown by Joe the BIRDMAN, and is an educational ambassador for her species, performing at zoos and other events around the country and has even been on The Tonight Show. She was completely unharmed during the appearance Friday night (although the BIRDMAN is a bit banged up). To learn more about the Andean condor click here.
If you can't make the games, tune in to all the action on Fox Sports Radio 970 AM, www.foxsports970am.com or on America One. "Condors Countdown" starts 15 minutes before the drop of the puck.
