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 tickets to the 2011 Ohio College Football Senior Bowl presented by the Ohio Army National Guard on April 23 at Crew Stadium in Columbus (up to a $24 value).
One of spring football's top events, the Ohio Army National Guard Senior Bowl rallies Ohio's premier college seniors to settle the North-South pigskin rivalry. Last year, the South defeated the North by one touchdown dance in a defensive battle. Coached by Ashland University's Lee Owens and Capital University's Henry Stanford (with 8-3 and 7-3 records respectively), this year's showdown between 90 of the state's top players and punting purists is sure to be a high-octane display of college football's raw athleticism.
Franklin County Children Services will serve as the event's charity, allowing foster children under the care of FCCS to attend the game and a football clinic prior to the game for free. Tickets can be exchanged for Groupons at the Ticketmaster booth at Crew Stadium on game day or up to four days prior to the game.
