SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – The San Francisco Bulls Professional Hockey Team, strong supporters of the Mayan calendar, are hosting the “It’s the End of the World as We Know it” game this Friday, December 21 at 7:15 pm at the Cow Palace, when the Ontario Reign come to town for one last hurrah. Believers or not are invited to attend what could be the final game in the Bulls’ brief history of existence.
“There is a lot of pressure to win the game on Friday because it could be the last,” said President and Head Coach Pat Curcio. “No matter what happens, we will finish the game. I don’t care if locusts invade or fireballs rain down on the Cow Palace. I have faith this old barn will withstand anything.”
Fans attending the game are encouraged to wear their best “End of the World” outfits, be it zombies, aliens, grim reaper or other appropriate costumes. Wearers of “End of the World” outfits can stop by the Guest Services table at the Main Lobby of the Cow Palace to receive two ticket vouchers to the Friday, December 28 contest between the Bulls and the Las Vegas Wranglers at the Cow Palace, in the event predictions are wrong.
In addition, fans can visit the Bulls Facebook page at fb.com/sanfranciscobulls and enter for a chance to win a one month emergency supply of food and 10 tickets to the December 21 game.
Fear not, seekers of sanctuary, the Cow Palace has withstood over half a century of storms, earthquakes and mobs, and may be the safest place to be on Doomsday, when the Mayan calendar is set to expire. Those that can prove that they sought refuge in Bugarach, France, but were denied entry, are allowed to seek refuge at the Cow Palace, free of charge the night of December 21. Please note, you must seek shelter elsewhere at the conclusion of the game.
Throughout the game, a Doomsday theme will ignite the Cow Palace and fizzle the visiting Reign. Come be part of a fun night as we ring in the end of days in style.
With the expectation of mass hysteria the day of the game, we recommend you purchase tickets early by calling 855-SF-BULLS or by visiting sfbulls.com/tickets. We’ll see you one last time at the Cow Palace, this Friday.
