A football's distinctive construction allows it to be thrown in a tight spiral, kicked through the uprights, or filled with helium so that it can return to its mother, the blimp overhead. Take possession with this GrouponLive deal for a ticket to see a Detroit Lions preseason game at Ford Field from Big Time Worldwide. For $27, you get one ticket for seating in sections 315–327 or sections 335–347 on Thursday, August 30 (a $54 value including ticket shipping fee). The game starts at 7 p.m., and gates open at 6 p.m.
After an impressive showing as the league's top offense this preseason, Detroit is ready to charge onto the field for one final tune-up. In 2011, the team made its first playoff appearance since 1999, doing so by surpassing the 10-win mark for the first time since 1995. The long-awaited success was fueled by the fourth-best passing offense in the league, which racked up more than 300 yards per game without any use of stucco or performance-dismantling banana peels.
As pads and helmets crunch on the field, the stadium’s 65,000 fans can scream, shout, scout schemes, and re-familiarize themselves with the team's gritty 4-3 defense. Fans can also absorb views of the city skyline, visible through the glass windows that encompass the facility's upper half. And for added visual support, large video boards give everyone the chance to relive the excitement of watching big hits and would-be field goals, which are so often batted away by startled goalposts.
