Football, or "pigskin," originally a pork byproduct, has become America's most popular pork-related pastime after recently topping baseball—a byproduct of sausage races. Commemorate sport’s other meat with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $32, you get two tickets to a U.S. Naval Academy football game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis (up to a $70 value). Choose between the following games:
- Against Southern Miss on Saturday, October 8, at 3:30 p.m.
- Against Troy on Saturday, November 5, at 3:30 p.m.
Head Coach Ken Niumatalolo and the Navy Midshipmen rumble into Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to face Southern Miss and Troy in high-energy battles over control of a hapless pigskin. With sights trained on a ninth straight bowl appearance, the Midshipmen's offensive attack is spearheaded by quarterback Kriss Proctor, a leader who would gladly shed his blue-and-gold blood to secure a win. Helmet-rattling hits come courtesy of a defense anchored by linebacker Matt Brewer, whose four forced fumbles in the first three games of 2011 already tie a single-season school record. Gates open 90 minutes prior to kickoff, giving school supporters and military buffs a chance to admire the thousands of memorial bench-back and wall plaques celebrating the Navy and Marine Corps. Restrooms, concessions, and souvenir shops are also peppered throughout the grounds to accommodate in-game exigencies and fashion emergencies.
Because preparation always benefits great tasks, fans can grill, drink, and nosh during tailgate parties on stadium property for hours leading up to the game.
