Las Vegas Wranglers Play 'Topless' Hockey Against Colorado Eagles Today
Today, Feb. 4, marks the Las Vegas Wranglers' fourth annual "Over 18 Night." The unforgettable night kicks off at 9:05 p.m. at Orleans Arena and will feature lots of skin and laughs as the popular ECHL team plays the Colorado Eagles. Already branded for their outrageous style, the Wranglers are making history by claiming the title of the world's first topless professional hockey team.
Sponsored by the newest hot spot at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Sin City Comedy, the specialty jersey features a bare chest, sculpted abs, and the Wranglers crest tattooed over the right pectoral. Adorning the shoulders are a "topless hockey" and Wranglers word mark, with light arm hair filling out the details. The jerseys will be auctioned on the concourse through the end of the second intermission, and one fan will win a topless jersey off a player's back at the end of the second period.
No stranger to pushing the limits, Wranglers President and Chief Operating Officer, Billy Johnson states, "The guys have never looked to be in better shape."
In addition to the risqué jerseys, Sin City Comedy will also provide guests top-notch entertainment throughout the night by showcasing the talents of their nationally known comedians.
