When the Condors
do a fighting cancer hockey-thon weekend, they do it up nice. 41-hours of hockey and charity auctions/fundraisers and hockey related family filled events! Oh my, I’m tired just typing that sentence I can only imagine how the Condors players and staff are feeling right about now.
Here’s a brief recap of this weekend’s 41-hour hockey-thon:Saturday:
-The Condors lost Saturday night to the Stockton Thunder 5-2.
-2,000 Fukufuji Bobbleheads were passed out to children Saturday night.
-I couldn’t convince any of the Condors staff that I was 12 so that they would give me a Fukufuji Bobblehead. Go figure.
-Not one 12 year old I asked would give up their Fukufuji Bobblehead to this Condors fan. Stingy!
-Teenagers refused to rumble 12 year olds for me in my quest for a Fukufuji Bobblehead. And here I thought teenagers were full of attitude looking for trouble.
-Condors’ veterans Rosebush and Mears showed off their goal shooting skills during the first intermission causing us fans to long for the good ole seasons of Condors yesteryear.
-The Condors gave money to charities.
-A local Iraqi war veteran got a standing ovation.Sunday:
-The Condors alumni team beat the Fresno Falcons alumni team 13-8. Are all of our best players retired?
-Kevin Barrett was awarded the alumni game’s first star.
-Sawyer Robinson was the 2 millionth Condors fan and received a Condors prize pack full of really cool Condors booty! I hope he made it out of the stadium with all his loot.
-The Condors lost to the Fresno Falcons 6-1 Sunday afternoon.
-Goalie Robinson earned a game misconduct and was replaced by Fukufuji who finished the game.
-I heard through the grapevine that Robinson’s game misconduct caused some upset among the players and fans causing things to be thrown on the ice. Rumble on the ice anyone?
-Four game-worn Condors Legends Hockey-thon jerseys were auctioned off live during Sunday’s game. Rosebush’s jersey raised the highest total of $2,200.
All in all it was a great Condors hockey weekend but still no Fukufuji Bobblehead for this Condors fan. If anyone would like to donate their Fukufuji Bobblehead to the good cause of making my Condors hockey Bobblehead dreams come true, please let me know.
