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.

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.
