Professional football is like Oktoberfest: it brings excitement to autumn and involves a lot of chanting and singing, but it can be a real sausage fest. Today’s Groupon gives the sport a much-needed, non-pompommed dose of estrogen: for $5, you get a ticket to any remaining regular-season home game of the Austin Outlaws (a $10 value). All the girl-on-girl-on-girl-on-girl-on-fumbled-ball action takes place at Westlake High School's Chaparral Stadium. Upcoming challengers include the Fort Worth Lonestar Mustangs (May 8) and the New Orleans Blaze (May 22); check the schedule to find a rivalry that matches your particular regional enmities. Kids under 12 get in free.
Feel the thrill as last year's Southwest Division champs (and the only Austin-area women's football team) steamroll the opposition in true champion fashion, a feat made even more impressive by the fact that they do it in stilettos. Watch linebacker Sekethia "Gran' Ma Ma" Tejada, defensive lineman Jessica "Lieutenant Dan" Arispe, and quarterback Marisa "Cookie" Rivas take on all comers and some others who didn't even come but had it coming anyway. And don't expect any shortened fields, wussy tear-away flags, or altered rules just because the players have little use for a cup—this is straight-up football, right down to the earth-shaking QB sacks, high-flying Hail Marys, and tackles that pack their own crater.
