Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with this GrouponLive deal to see an Everett Raptors indoor football game against the Nebraska Danger at Comcast Arena at Everett. For $10, you get one ticket for terrace-level seating on the upper sideline in sections 207–210 or 216–220 on Thursday, April 5, at 7:05 p.m. (a $20 value).
After recently saving football in Everett from extinction, the Raptors continue to prowl through their inaugural season during a helmet-clattering clash with conference rival Nebraska. Terrace-level seats pass unfettered views into eyes of all ages as quarterback Charles McCullum spearheads the Raptors' offensive attack, which has shredded defenses and averaged more than 40 points per game. Wide receiver Lonnie Sanders soars skyward to haul in spirals, including seven touchdowns in his first three games, and Washington State alum and defensive lineman Michael Graise relentlessly spins, shoves, and asks politely for admittance into opposing backfields.
Previously known as the Kent Predators and Seattle Timberwolves, the Raptors represent one of two Washington teams in the Indoor Football League, which continues to expand faster than an over-caffeinated blowfish. Since their establishment last fall, the Raptors have already left a charitable footprint on the community, partnering with such organizations as the Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish County to aid area youth.
