Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with today's Groupon: for $12 you get two upper-section tickets to see the Cincinnati Commandos indoor-football team take on the Port Huron Predators on April 8 at 8:05 p.m. (up to a $24 value) at the historic Cincinnati Gardens.
As the defending Continental Indoor Football League champions, the Cincinnati Commandos delight fans and consternate foes with powerhouse gridiron action on cozy, indoor battlefields. From seats in the Gardens' upper section, supporters cheer on local favorites including linebacker Torry Cornett, defensive lineman Terrill Byrd, and running back Keith Brooks as they take the field for a tilt against Michigan's Port Huron Predators, a new team whose impressive debut came thanks to seven interceptions by the team's jetpack-clad cornerbacks. Salute the Commandos' record-breaking quarterback Tyler Sheehan's rocket appendage as he fires inflated ovals deep into in the end zone, racking up points and accolades along the way.
Undefeated through the first three games of the 2011 season, the Commandos' pigskin professionals opened the chase for their second consecutive championship by outscoring overmatched opponents and boy scout troops earning their football merit badges by a total of 132 points.
