Some say the world will end in fire, the San Francisco Bulls say on ice.
As anyone who has access to the Internet knows, the end of everything is coming on Dec. 21. (NPR, among others, says this isn't the case, but you know how they are.) Anyhoo, the San Francisco Bulls hockey team is taking advantage of the big finale that night with an "It's the End of the World As We Know It" game at the Cow Palace against the Ontario Reign.
"A bunch of us were sitting around the other day," says Bulls media director and broadcaster Jason Lockhart, "and we just thought, since everyone has been talking about how Friday is going to be the end of the world, we should have a little fun with it."
The team has issued a press release about the event complete with deadpan quotes from president and head coach Pat Curcio. “There is a lot of pressure to win the game on Friday because it could be the last,” he said.
Fans can enter a contest to win one month's supply of emergency food and 10 tickets to the game by posting the reason they want to spend their last day on earth with the Bulls. The team is also encouraging attendees to dress appropriately.
