Charlie Sheen Night

Borrowing a page from minor league baseball, the Bakersfield Condors hockey team hosted its “Charlie Sheen Night” when they played the Idaho Steelheads in an ECHL game.
(“ECHL” used to stand for East Coast Hockey League, but obviously, Bakersfield is in California on the west coast.)
The promotion included “tiger’s blood slushies,” a reference to a highly publicized photo of Charlie Sheen guzzling a bottle of Tigers Blood snow cone syrup.
Anyone who brought proof of a clean drug test got in free, and if you dressed like one of his characters (e.g., with a fedora and/or bowling shirt), you got an admission discount. Additionally, the Condors are trying to break his Twitter record by exceeding a million followers in less than 25 hours and 17 minutes.
Here’s the best part – the first 1,000 fans got a Charlie Sheen mask on a stick. Woo hoo!
The promotion worked … the Condors beat the Steelheads 2-1.
And no, Charlie Sheen did not show up. Shucks.
