Condors Call Up Belardes To Help Tuesday

"We've been to Bakersfield, Bakersfield has NOTHING on us!" that's how John Tull started the evening, pumping up the crowd. One thing is for sure, the Condors have nothing on Fraser Clair. Fraser had a playoff "career night" by beating Bako' almost single handed.

Even though it wasn't a big crowd Monday night, the Save Mart (or "The Cooler", as I call it) had a real playoff edginess - It felt good.

Tuesday night's game will have a sharper "edge" in the stands, as Bakersfield blogger and man about town N.L. Belardes will be in the Save Mart Center - and I will be sitting next to him.

I may need some back-up; somebody to pull his sweater over his head at-the-drop-of-a-puck.

**FYI: New pics from FalconsvsCondors game one can be found on the Flickr badge, down on the right.

Ninety Nine Rivals

It's is on Fresno. What Falcons fans, players and management have been waiting for: A playoff battle between Fresno and Bakersfield.

I'd be willing to bet that Condor's Blogger NL Belardes will take a break from his hiatus to chime in on this one.

Series prediction from The Unofficial: Falcons in six.

Falcons Hope To Check Parker or Nomar

As you read the Falcons media release below, you'll find out some Falcons will be at the Grizzlies game Thursday. Let's just hope one of the Falcons lay a MASSIVE check on new Grizzlies mascot Parker

FRESNO, Calif. – Join the Fresno Falcons for a Pacific Division Finals Playoff Rally at Grizzlies Stadium tomorrow when the Grizzlies host the Las Vegas 51s at 7:05 p.m.

The Falcons will be introduced down on the field before the game with one player throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. The players will then adjourn to the stadium concourse where they will sign autographs through the first couple of innings.

Slated to play against the Grizzlies tomorrow night is All-Star Nomar Garciaparra, who is now a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The former American League batting champion is currently rehabbing an injury with the 51s. For more information on Grizzlies ticket prices, please visit www.fresnogrizzlies.com.

The Falcons continue their post-season run in the Pacific Division Finals after sweeping the San Diego Gulls in the first round of the Kelly Cup Playoffs. They open their next best-of-seven series against either the Bakersfield Condors or Long Beach Ice Dogs in Games One and Two of the Division Finals at Save Mart Center on Monday and Tuesday, Apr. 24 and 25, at 7:30 p.m. each night. Tickets are on sale for both games at all Ticketmaster outlets and Save Mart Center’s box office beginning as low as $14 for Silver Section seats and just $10 for Student Section seats.

San Jose Watching Fresno

Just when I thought nobody was paying attention to this blog; Just when I thought the Sharks weren't paying attention to the Falcons, I got sent this: Falcons on Sharkspage.com.

A very nice full report on the past Falcons vs Stockton Thunder game. Unfortunately, it's a game the Falcons lost but it's still a fine report. It even has a picture gallery from the game and a pre-season interview with Jamie Holden.

After perusing through Sharkspage.com I realized that it's is a kick-ass hockey blog. Better than this one and certainly better than some lamewad Bakersfield Condors Blog.
