We Couldn’t Make This Up: ‘Charlie Sheen Night’ in the ECHL
Puck Daddy’s Sean Leahy with the details on the Bakersfield Condors upcoming ‘Charlie Sheen Night’:
• Free admission for anyone who brings a clean drug test, which could bring interesting results.
• Ditch the Condors hat and pop on a fedora or dress like any Sheen movie character and your ticket is just $2.50. (We’d go with Jake Kesey from “The Wraith”, because we imagine there’ll be one too many Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughns in attendance).
• If you’re one of the first 1,000 males you get a Sheen face on a stick mask.
• Bakersfield is also attempting a Guinness World Record of reaching one million Twitter followers in less than 25 hours and 17 minutes, the amount of time it took Sheen to hit one million when he joined the social media site this week. Should they break the record, they’ll let Sheen rename the team.
For the record, I’d don the denim and glazed eyes look that Sheen rocked in 1990′s “The Rookie”.
