Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get a ticket package to see the Lehigh Mountain Hawks play the Yale Bulldogs at Goodman Stadium in Bethlehem on Saturday, October 1, at 12:30 p.m. (up to a $30 total value). Buyers may pick up their tickets at the United Way of Greater Lehigh Valley until 12 p.m. on Friday, September 30 or at the United Way table at the stadium entrance on game day. The package includes the following:
- One general-admission ticket to the game (up to a $12 value; tickets are $6 each for educators and their family members). Buyers are encouraged to sit on the visitors’ side of the field, in sections EA and EB, which have been set aside for the United Way.
- A lunch including an organic hot dog, side dish, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage donated by Rodale Catering.
- One Live United T-shirt, which buyers are encouraged to wear to the game (a $13 value).
- One United Way water bottle (a $5 value).
The Lehigh gridiron sizzles with the meaty tackles and scorching sprints of the Yale Bulldogs, who have nabbed the Patriot League crown eight times in the past 20 years. Senior quarterback Chris Lum earned first-team All-Patriot League honors in 2010 after completing 58% of his passes for 2,881 yards, then landed the Sports Network's Offensive Player of the Week title for scoring four touchdowns and stealing the referee's hat at Lehigh's season opener against Monmouth. Having transitioned from linebacker to defensive lineman, senior Ben Flizack hopes to top last year's 36 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Today’s Groupon teams with the United Way of Greater Lehigh Valley to celebrate Educator Appreciation Day with school spirit and a giant, freshly polished apple orbiting above the stadium. Deal-getters can don their new Live United T-shirts and cheer on the Mountain Hawks from the home team's slice of the stadium, located in visitor sections EA–EB.
Goodman Stadium welcomes visitors with 16,000 seats and breathtaking views of South Mountain. Here, fans can learn about volunteer opportunities at the United Way table, trade squawks with Clutch, the Mountain Hawks mascot, or squirt thirsty turf-roses with their brand-new water bottles.
