LOOK: ECHL's Bakersfield Condors hold awesome 'Seinfeld' night
It was Seinfeld Night for the Bakersfield Condors and they pulled out all the stops to honor one of the greatest TV comedies of all time.
The Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL have always been one of the more creative minor league clubs when it comes to bringing in the fans. Saturday night, the team hosted Seinfeld Night and pulled out all of the stops.
The Condors players wore jerseys that replicated the “Puffy Shirt” from a classic episode of the popular comedy. Additionally all of the Condors lost their real names on the back of their jerseys and took on monikers from the show like Seinfeld, Keith Hernandez, Kramer, The Wiz, etc.
Among the many Seinfeld-related promotions throughout the game, the club put a new spin on the “shoot the puck” competition for fans and re-dubbed it “shoot the marble rye.” Somewhere, George Costanza is shuddering at the thought of it.
There was also a Kramer impersonator out and about to entertain the fans.
Unfortunately, the Condors lost the game 2-1 in overtime to the Idaho Steelheads. You can check out the highlights from the game and get a look at some of the promotions they ran with this video here:
The jerseys were auctioned off after the game. One of the jerseys actually ended up going for $1,800 according to Mike Griffith of the Bakersfield Californian. We’re not going to give it away right here, but of all the crazy characters in the Seinfeld universe, can you guess which jersey would be most desirable to own?
How can you not love minor league hockey promotions?
