The world's oldest form of entertainment, competitive butterfly-catching, lost its luster after prehistoric butterflies devolved into the smaller, non-man-eating versions fluttering through today's skies. Come see its replacement with today's lacrosse deal: $17 for a club-level ticket to the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic on Saturday, March 12, at M&T Bank Stadium. Kick off the season with the fifth annual Face-Off, which starts at 11 a.m. and features three exciting games.
Admission for all three games is included in the value of this Groupon. The ball-tossing battle begins with the a Big East battle between Syracuse and Georgetown at 11 a.m. Next, watch as Cornell, led by new coach Ben DeLuca, goes up against nationally ranked Virginia at 1:30 p.m. The day concludes with Johns Hopkins versus UMBC at 4 p.m. Take in all the action from club-level seats.
College sports provide spectators with a nostalgic and socially acceptable outlet to revisit their youthful antics. Typically shunned behaviors (face painting, loud screaming) are not only given the green light, but encouraged. Onlookers get the excitement of hockey's nets without the arctic chill and the furious balls of golf without the whispers and argyle. Tickets will be available at will-call and parking must be paid separately.
