Laters, Baby – Condors to wear 50 shades of grey

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors, owned by the Edmonton Oilers, announced today that the team is kicking the second annual Undie Sunday (February 15, 5:30 p.m.) up a notch with the unveiling of 50 Shades of Grey jerseys for charity.
“Nobody has more fun,” Condors Team President Matthew Riley said about the evening.
  • Sunday, Feb. 15, 5:30 p.m., Rabobank Arena (Buy tickets)
  • When the Condors score their first goal of the game, fans are invited to throw NEW undergarments (bras, underwear, t-shirts, socks, boxers, diapers etc) on the ice to be collected by Dream Builders and donated to local charities. (WATCH: Last year’s Undie Sunday Toss)
  • Last season, the Condors collected and donated nearly 6,000 pieces of clothing for charity including 1,096 pairs of socks, 2,773 pair of underwear, 1,747 diapers, and 55 bras on Undie Sunday
  • The Condors will wear special 50 Shades of Grey jerseys (sponsored by 97.3 JACK FM), and after the game the players will strip them off to be auctioned off post-game to benefit the Kern Adult Literacy Council
  • The jerseys literally feature 50 shades of the color grey, along with a necktie, masquerade mask, and handcuffs which are all featured on the cover of the widely-popular trilogy. Rejected jersey designs were admittedly more “interesting”.
  • On the side, a trio of book outlines are stacked as if on a shelf and the catchphrase “Laters Baby” from the book is linked with the handcuffs on the lower back
  • The Condors will look to dominate the game, and hopefully whip the Aces
  • More than 100 million books have been sold with nearly 400,000 copies purchased each week; the trilogy is the first to sell more than 1,000,000 e-copies on Amazon Kindle
  • A perfect tie-in for the game, the film adaption (with a trailer that has been viewed more than 250 million times) hits theaters on Friday, Feb. 13
  • When you go to see the movie, bring your ticket stub from Maya Cinemas and receive 2-for-1 admission to this Condors game
