Rugby, the original ovoid-ball sport, was played throughout the world before a mutated virus caused players to sprout pads and inexplicably start passing forward. Return to the scrimmaging roots of sport with today's deal: for $12, you get two large popcorns ($8.10 including tax) and two large sodas ($5.40 including tax) along with two tickets ($12) to see a Glendale Raptors match at Infinity Park Stadium, the self-declared first municipally-owned rugby-specific stadium in the United States. See the sidebar for available matches. This Groupon expires November 6, 2010.
A nationally-ranked rugby franchise, the Glendale Raptors play at the rugby-specific Infinity Park Stadium in Glendale, which hosts USA rugby national championship matches and the Churchill Cup, as well as regular action-crammed matches during the Raptors' season. Brush up on the rules with the Raptor FAQs or invite a rugby-crazed friend to a match to scream insightful play analyses. Unlike law-obsessed American sports, rugby keeps the action moving with no penalty time-outs, huddles, referee reviews, or crappy halftime shows. With or without intimate knowledge of the sport, the tickets can get you close enough to feel the excitement from every scrum, share the adrenaline of a breakthrough run, and cry like an emotive pygmy chimpanzee with each pad-free, muscle-on-bone tackle.
Tickets are general admission; there is no assigned seating.
