HOLTY’S BLOG: “Houle as in Cool”

In true @PrezRiles fashion, he announced to the media today that the “Condors have hired J.F. Houle. Pronounced Houle as in cool.” (Full video here) That’s the easiest way to remember who the team selected from dozens of qualified candidates to be the sixth head coach in team history. Last week, I gave you a […]

HOLTY’S BLOG: Signing Players and Coaches

Since I didn’t blog yesterday, which has become known as my designated blog day, I figured I’d hit you with a two-part Holty’s Blog on a Friday. Don’t say I never gave you anything! Apologies in advance to good friend of the blog @GrizzliesVoice, who writes his blog on Fridays. Go read that one too […]

Holty’s Blog: Thanks Troy

I don’t care that blogs normally come out on Thursdays. When I want to blog, I blog. And today I feel like writing. Earlier today, Troy Mann left Condorstown for the much sweeter confines of Chocolatetown to become the head coach of the Hershey Bears. See what I did there? When I found out late […]

HOLTY’S BLOG: What’s up?


Yes, I’m on vacation. Yes, I’m 3,000 miles away from the office. But, yes, it’s pouring rain outside, so time to crack out a blog. I like the hodgepodge blog that I had the last time. Some quick hits, if you will. This will be similar. Short and sweet folks. But kind of related. You’ll […]

HOLTY’S BLOG: Random Thoughts


Anyone who knows me knows at least two things. 1) I talk a lot. 2) I tend to jump from subject to subject without much natural transition With that in mind, I present to you, the most random collection of thoughts on my mind. If it reads like I’m writing this on my couch, watching […]

HOLTY’S BLOG: A Memorable Postseason

2014-06-05 HoltysBlog

Hello friends and welcome to another exciting edition of Holty’s Blog. It’s been a while since we last talked. That’s a good thing. It means there was a long season and a shortened offseason, all of which I can get used to in a hurry. The title of the blog is a little misleading, because […]

HOLTY’S BLOG: Trade or no trade?

­­­Welcome back people! Holty’s blog is back, for one time only, at least until the offseason. Man, it feels good. I was just sitting around looking at old Condors trades and then friend of the blog, @KevinBartl said, “hey Holt, this smells like a blog.” I would have preferred it smell like bacon, but a […]


So, I failed Condorstown. A couple weeks ago, I said that this blog would continue every week during the season. Obviously, the past two weeks have not featured a blog. So, I apologize.  It’s my blog, and I’ll do what I want … but, please take me back. We’re off to Alaska tomorrow for a […]


I am currently coming to you LIVE from the spacious breakfast bar/nook at the La Quinta Airport North Inn and Suites in lovely South San Francisco. The air is crisp, my Coke is cold, and we are ready for hockey. In a few hours’ time, we’ll don the suits, grab a cup of coffee, and […]


The Bakersfield Condors are members of the ECHL. The Bakersfield Condors are not members of the East Coast Hockey League.  Just want to clarify this for all members of the national hockey insiders who decided to dabble into the world of the “Premier AA Hockey League” last night. If you missed it, allegedly, according to […]
