Humans have been putting spherical objects in hoops for centuries, but until the invention of the dunk, the fast break, and face dribbling, it wasn’t an activity worth watching. See if “basketball” lives up to the hype with today’s deal to see the Denver Nuggets play the Phoenix Suns at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday, February 14, at 7 p.m. For $54, you get a basketball outing for two (up to a $108 total value), which includes:
On Valentine’s Day, fans exercise their seldom-used yodeling muscles by cheering on the Denver Nuggets, who boast one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league, as they face off against the Phoenix Suns, the winningest franchise to have never won an NBA Championship.
