For the fourth race on its 2012 tour, the American Drag Racing League returns to Gateway Motorsports Park's 1/8-mile drag strip for the first time since 2010. Piloting dragsters separated into seven all-professional racing classes, from Top Sportsman to Pro Extreme, drivers rocket down the track so quickly that they finish each race younger than when they began. The SuperCar Showdown—a new feature on the 2012 circuit—pits the latest consumer automobiles against one another in no-holds-barred drag race free from the usual handicaps, performance restrictions, and rules against fiddling with rival drivers' preset radio stations. After reopening under the helm of former Indy driver Curtis Francois, Gateway Motorsports Park has stepped up its devotion to motorsports of all kinds, looking beyond the drag strip to fill its amphitheater-style seats with fans of everything from hot rods to world-class stock cars.
In their third year as an AHL team, the Monsters are hoping to land a coveted playoff spot. Even if you don't know the first thing about hockey (which is known as "football" in Europe), you'll soon learn to love the brutal ballet of power plays and slap shots, the spray of skate-shredded ice, and the satisfying Plexiglas ka-thunk of a well-executed body check—especially the way the Monsters like to play the game. With $1 hot dogs and $1 sodas available on both nights (not included in your Groupon), a Monsters game also gives you a date option that’s cheaper and less dangerous than a hot-air balloon dogfight.
Entering their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add a new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet further than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.
From 1992–1994, the Cleveland Thunderbolts gave the city its first taste of Arena Football League action. And while the taste was but a tease at the time—the team disbanded at the end of the 1994 season—AFL fans eventually would see a return to revelry in 2008 with the arrival of the Gladiators, a team that bounced around the country like a rock band on pogo sticks before diggin’ in their cleats at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. In their first official season, the Gladiators introduced themselves in grand fashion by advancing to the franchise's first-ever conference championship game—a tough loss, to the eventual league champion Philadelphia Soul, that’s since stood as the squad’s humbling reminder of the unending effort required to achieve league dominance.

Presented by the COB Foundation, the Ohio Homecoming is one of the organization’s many community-wide events that raise funds to help connect residents to career and education resources. With today's deal, music enthusiasts join the celebration during a special concert from Grammy-nominated artist Drake. Just days before the release of his second studio album, Take Care, Drake splits the spotlight with a special guest to rouse fans with infectious beats, unfeigned lyrics, and his family's long list of secret spaghetti recipes. The young flow-master's expanding legend already includes collaborations with rap savants Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, plus a lineup of chart-dominating singles such as "Best I Ever Had," "Make Me Proud," and "Headlines." Ohio Homecoming has billed the show as an encore performance, as its original July date was cancelled due to a local thundercloud's misinterpretation of what making it rain means.
