Everyone knows that minor League baseball is the breeding ground for crazy promotional games. But since the baseball season isn’t underway just yet, there’s a void for Charlie Sheen promotional games. Enter the Bakersfield Condors.
The Condors intend to take full advantage of all the “Winning” Sheen has been doing recently on March 12th where they’ll be having their “Charlie Sheen Night”. The Tiger blood will surely be flowing.
The Bakersfield Condors have announced details for Charlie Sheen Night, Saturday, Mar. 12 when they take on the Idaho Steelheads at Rabobank Arena. That night is also St. Patrick’s Jersey Off Our Backs night. Doors open at 6 p.m., the puck drops at 7 p.m.
Many Charlie Sheen-themed events will surround the night, making light of the cultural-phenomenon, including ticket and food deals, and even a twitter World Record attempt.
• Wear a fedora, or dress like any Charlie Sheen movie character and receive admission for two and a half bucks ($2.50).
• Bring a clean drug test and receive free admission.
• 2-for-1 Tiger Blood Icees and snow cones for the kids.
• The first 1,000 males will receive a Charlie Sheen face on a stick mask.
• Follow the Condors on twitter and we’re confident you won’t be nearly as entertained as if you followed Charlie Sheen on twitter. However, the Condors are inviting everyone to sign up to follow the Condors on twitter (http://twitter.com/condors), and if we beat Charlie’s Guinness World Record of reaching one million followers in less than 25 hours and 17 minutes, we’ll let Charlie rename the team, as he seems to have a lot of creative ideas lately.
• Bring $2 million (reportedly as much as Charlie doesn’t earn with each cancelled episode) and you can own the Condors!
• Charlie’s dubbed “Goddesses” (Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin) have been named as honorary captains for the game. We’re guessing the Steelheads won’t mind if they get to hang out on the bench.
• A rock band from Mars will play in front of the arena on the plaza before the game.
• Before this game, the Condors aren’t going to practice, attempting to channel Sheen’s no-rehearsal-required spirit. After all, to quote the great Allen Iverson, “We’re talkin’ about practice?!”
“We picked this date for the Charlie Sheen Night because we figured St. Patrick’s Day was a Holiday that Charlie enjoyed celebrating,” said Condors President Matthew Riley. “We would invite him come up to the game and participate in a ceremonial puck drop and just have fun for the night with our fans. We’ll even give him the ticket special for dressing up like himself.”
“And oh yeah,” adds Riley. “To stick with the Charlie Sheen theme, we plan on ‘winning’ the game.”
