Soccer, like love, is a language best expressed through body paint and head butts. Discover a love of the game with today's Groupon: for $5, you get a ticket to a Charlotte Eagles home soccer match at Charlotte Christian Stadium (up to a $10 value). The ticket is valid for any home game except the July 14 match against the Bolton Wanderers. This Groupon expires on July 31, the last home date of the 2010 season.
The Charlotte Eagles are a professional men's soccer team who compete in the second division of the United Soccer Leagues. This year's roster is packed with serious soccer muffins, such as midfielder and fruit elitist Joe DeLass and Uruguayan forward Gustavo Bentos. The players will only be able to display fancy footwork for four more home games. Check out the schedule and plan to attend a game when the sun will be close enough to earth to tan your body home-team orange.
Soccer, the world’s most popular sport, is so significant because of its poetic simplicity: no hoops, pads, sticks, or T-shirt guns that blast out shaving cream. No other sport combines the acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil with the raw physicality of golf. Revel in the unadulterated thrill of things bouncing off heads and the exhilaration of being unable to use your hands.
