In the animal kingdom, football is played with cheetah running backs, buffalo linemen, and a seagull that is forced to curl up and act as the ball. Catch humanity's version of the animals' gridiron gallantry with today's Groupon: for $38, you get one upper-level season-ticket package to the Columbus Lions' 2011 season (a $77 value) at the Columbus Civic Center.
