Low-flying Condors do not deserve your money

The Bakersfield Condors do not understand the difference between silly toilet humor and going straight into the gutter.

And I suggest the Thunder fans answer with a full-body check in the wallet.

The Condors, who have never been the classiest organization in the world, will be holding a “Our City Isn’t Bankrupt Night” when it hosts the Thunder on Dec. 27. It’s classless. And despite coming from a team has given away rolls of toilet paper and plungers with their opponents’ logo on it, a little shocking.

But they do these things, such as offering a contract to Justin Bieber, to get attention and sell tickets. They have the right to have their promotions, and as a consumer you have a right to respond.

If their tactics upset you, I suggest you introduce the Condors to a “B” word other than Bakersfield and bankruptcy: boycott.

I would not go to that game, or any other this season at Rabobank Arena, until there’s an apology. I know that there’s many Thunder fans who like to go to Bakersfield for games. It’s a fun trip, and there’s always been a great rivalry between the teams.

I would take my travel funds and use it to go see the Thunder play the new San Francisco Bulls or go to Las Vegas, which admittedly is not a huge sacrifice.

Not going to Bakersfield will not bust their franchise, but it does make the proper point.
