Sometimes the Cincinnati Cyclones are good enough to eat.

The Cyclones will test that theory on Friday, March 11, when the team becomes the Cincinnati Coneys for a home game against the Wheeling Nailers.

The local food theme continues in that night's giveaway: a bobblehead of Cyclones — er, Coneys — head coach Jason Payne holding a big-old Skyline three-way (available to the first 3,000 ticketed fans). The team also will be wearing Coneys jerseys on the ice.
"Do you think @JasonPayne67 cuts or twirls?" the Cyclones recently asked its Twitter followers.

"Only one way to find out!" Skyline shot back.

The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 11, at Heritage Bank Center. Tickets start at $19 and are still available. See the Cyclones' other promotions and special-event games.
