Hockey is the fastest-paced of all major sports, because its players rush to complete the game before the ice field melts into vinegar. Enjoy the acidic thrill of competition with today's GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get four terrace-level tickets to a Bakersfield Condors home hockey game at Rabobank Arena (up to a $44 value). This Groupon is valid for any single game through November 22.
Led by rookie Head Coach Matt O’Dette, the back-to-back Pacific Division champion Bakersfield Condors fight to maintain their lofty perch atop the ECHL’s ice-hockey ecosystem. Having honed their beaks and blades against early competition, the Condors dive into the meatier portion of their schedule fully confident in their roster's abilities. Top-scoring winger Jesse Gimblett feeds pucks to hungry nets and goaltender Matt Keetley carefully applies super glue to the ice in front of his posts.
Fans seated in the terrace section of the 8,705-capacity Rabobank Arena enjoy a bird's-eye view of the action as the Condors patiently circle their prey on the ice below. In-game promotions keep fans at fever pitch while the players cool down in the locker room, with an appearance by the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Men on October 28 and a $1 hot dog and half-price beer deal on November 22.
