Originally invented by bored henchmen looking to pass the time at Doctor Berserko’s secret Antarctic lair, hockey has since overtaken polo and unicycle jousting as America's pastime. Hop on the bandwagon with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets to a Dayton Gems hockey game at Hara Arena (up to a $24 value). Children younger than 3 always enter for free. Choose between the following dates:
- Friday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. against the Quad City Mallards
- Saturday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m. against the Quad City Mallards
For the Friday-night game, the first 1,000 fans will receive a set of trading cards and players in the set will sign autographs after the game. On Saturday, March 26, the Gems celebrate Fan Appreciation Night—the last home game of the regular season—auctioning off the team's black jerseys after the game, and the first 1,000 youth attendees will receive a jersey of their own. The tough-as-nails, take-no-guff Gems are determined to close the regular season on a high note before entering the Central Hockey League playoffs. Watch Greg Labenski lead the defense as goalie Derek MacIntyre fiercely protects the tensile strength of the net by deflecting all incoming projectiles. With any luck, spectators will witness a hat trick, an all-out line brawl, and a reenactment of the Great Librarians' Uprising of 1974.
The Dayton Gems have more than 1,070 Facebook fans.
