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 $20, you get a family pack of tickets (two adults, three children age 17 and under) to one Eastern Washington University Football game at Roos Field (a $40 value). Choose from the following 1:05 p.m. games:
- October 9 vs. Northern Arizona University (the first 2,000 fans will receive a commemorative poster and the chance to win a framed poster signed by Coach Beau Baldwin and four players)
- October 23 vs. California State University-Sacramento
- November 13 vs. Southern Utah University
- November 20 vs. Idaho State University
The EWU Eagles play their home games at the recently renovated Roos Field, which boasts an intimidating red-turf surface called the “Inferno”—confused opposing teams frequently draw up plays involving hopping from couches to pillowcases in an attempt to avoid this “lava.” The family pass allows two adults and three children, or two adults and three cleverly disguised vuvuzelas, the opportunity to taste the festive atmosphere of college football. Tickets can be redeemed at the box office and are valid for the best available seats.
Led by head coach Beau Baldwin and the offensive explosiveness of QB Bo Mitchell and RB Taiwan Jones, the Eagles are preparing for their upcoming schedule against the gridiron gangs of the Big Sky Conference. Before cheering on the red-and-white for four quarters of high-octane action, bask in the ambience of the free tailgate party in the back parking lot, discussing football and condensed matter with fellow fans and physicists.
