Professional football is like Oktoberfest: it brings excitement to autumn and offers ample opportunities to drink beer, but it can be a real sausage fest. Today’s Groupon gives the sport a much-needed, non-pompommed dose of estrogen: for $15, you get tickets to the Minnesota Vixen's three remaining home games (a $30 value): May 8 (vs. Chicago Force), May 15 (vs. Kansas City Tribe), and June 5 (vs. Wisconsin Wolves). The Vixen is a full-contact Independent Women’s Football League team that plays its games at Burnsville High School.
With only three home-turf games remaining in the season, cheer on the Twin Cities' fearsome squad of sassy ladies as they run, pass, tackle, kick, shimmy, teleport, twirl, and crank call their way across the gridiron. But don't expect any shortened fields, wussy tear-away flags, or altered rules just because the players have little use for a cup—this is straight-up football, right down to the earth-shaking QB sacks, high-flying Hail Marys, and tackles that pack their own crater. This hard-hitting action, coupled with intricate strategic plays, provides more entertainment than a shaky washing-machine race through a corn maze. Additionally, on May 8, Burnsville High School will host a BirdieBall golf tournament prior to the Vixen game (not included with the Groupon), which will feature par 3 holes, field goal drives, various prizes, and an opportunity to pair football with the most brutally unforgiving of sports.
Football of any gender makes for a thrilling spectacle of grass-shredding action without the risk of getting caught in the boss’s backyard in the middle of the night. Everyone can buy up to four Groupons, so invite along friends, family, or a high-school baseball team of misfit underdogs in need of ball-related inspiration; or just fill every seat with life-size cardboard cutouts of yourself.
