everything cool happens in bakersfield

friday night their incredibly entertaining minor league hockey team,

the condors

brought a real condor center ice during the national anthem.

now if there was one thing i loved when i sold peanuts for the giants

back in the day

was when someone wanted to do something insane during the anthem.

this guy thought it was a good idea to try to put this weird huge bird

in the middle of an ice rink

and of course hilarity ensued.

funny, yes, but not quite as epic as when around this time last year

they had a beautiful bench clearing brawl against the Ontario Reign

if i ever had to live anywhere near the 99

i would have season tickets to the condors
