Condor "Queen Victoria" (aka Vicki) heads to Bakersfield for opening night. (Last year's performance went viral)

And other team promos for the season.

That's going to be a very disappointed crowd if it goes off without a hitch. :laugh:

Will that be during hunting season in Bakersfield?!

Great decision by them to go with another live Condor. Even though last year that promotion didn't go as expected (and was very funny) it got the job done, I saw the story on Yahoo. It got them good publicity.

There was an article after the event and the trainer/owner stated that he would do it again, broke ribs and all, if it meant that more exposure for the endangered birds. It was a good point.

Sitting in the stands it was an incredible sight. Seeing a live bird with a 8-10 foot wing span. Probably not as cool as the LSU tiger mascot and his $3 million living quarters. See Condors website and Holty's blog.

I was watching that live online last year. Bakersfield has the best marketing team in minor league hockey.
