Soccer players have reaped the benefits of the game's popularity by choosing to grocery shop, do laundry, and high-five strangers using only their feet. Watch out for high kicks with today's GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get two premium-level Carolina RailHawks tickets and two admissions to the Taste of the Triangle restaurant showcase (a $50 value); both the game and the Taste are held on Wednesday, August 17, at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary. Taste of the Triangle begins at 5:30 p.m., with the game following at 7 p.m.
The North American Soccer League 2010 conference champion RailHawks are set to clash cleats with the NSC Minnesota Stars and continue their meteoric ascent to the playoffs. Watch from the premium sideline seats as team captain Kupono Low leads the charge across the turf, and Etienne Barbara, one of the league's lead goal scorers, hypnotizes the opposing goalie into perceiving the ball as a flaming beehive. Coming off a 10-game win streak earlier in the season, which helped the team rank first in the league, the squad is poised to rout all comers, backed by their avian mascot, Swoops.
Before the game, enter the Taste of the Triangle tent to enjoy cold soda, beer from vendors such as Carolina Brewery, and the delicacies of more than 50 area restaurants, all of which only appear to mortal eyes when the planets are in correct alignment.
