Football is the ultimate sport, as it incorporates the fast pace of basketball, the timely precision of baseball, and the full-contact aggression of wrestling down purse snatchers in food courts. Unleash the beast with this GrouponLive deal to see the Philadelphia Soul play against the Jacksonville Sharks at Wells Fargo Center. For $20, you get one ticket for lower-level, end-zone seating (marked in orange on the seating chart) for the American Conference championship playoff game on Friday, August 3, at 8 p.m. (a $41.40 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
After a resounding victory over New Orleans in the first round of the playoffs, the Soul rumble into the American Conference championship game for the first time since 2008, when they seized their first-ever ArenaBowl title. During the 2012 regular season, their offense shattered the league's single-season scoring record behind quarterback Dan Raudabaugh, who set franchise records with 4,679 yards and 110 touchdown passes. Raudabaugh's destruction of opposing defenses extended into the opening week of the postseason, as he fired seven more touchdowns, three of which stuck in the outstretched hands or between the powerful jaws of wide receiver Donovan Morgan.
On the opposing sideline, reigning AFL champions Jacksonville Sharks counter the Soul offense with one of the most secure defensive units in the league. The gridiron tug-of-war unfolds in front of a raucous Wells Fargo Center crowd, who, with the support of the Soulmates cheerleading squad and the sunglasses-clad SoulMan, intend to send the Sharks home with nothing but useless Disney World maps.
