Few fans realize the important contributions football has made to fashion and industry, from business-casual mouth guards to helmet visors for extreme accounting. Enjoy an indispensable sport with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to any regular-season home game of the Carolina Phoenix women’s tackle-football team in Durham (up to a $20 value). Children 12 and under are admitted for free.
The Carolina Phoenix are part of the Independent Women’s Football League, a nonprofit corporation with more than 1,600 full-tackle footballers playing for 51 teams throughout North America. The Phoenix have a 24-5 overall record heading into the 2011 season and average 20 grunts per down, promising spectators a bone-crunching, gridiron-stomping game with a unique set of rules and zero midgame helmet commercials. After checking the schedule and choosing the April 23, May 21, June 4, or June 12 showdown, fans can advance to Durham Memorial Stadium and watch the Phoenix rise from the ashes and toss pigskins through the air without drawing the ire of swine farmers or air-traffic controllers.
