A promotions genius — and I'm not being sarcastic — decided it would be great to have a live condor on the ice at the Bakersfield Condors game this past Feb. 8. Once this giant bird escapes the grip of his handler, hilarity ensues. The broadcasters can't even quit their laughter — one exclaims, "this is the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life."

Watch this bird breakout out of this rink like he's Andy from Shawshank.
