Originally invented by bored henchmen looking to pass the time at Doctor Berserko’s secret Antarctic lair, hockey has since overtaken polo and unicycle jousting as America's pastime. Hop on the bandwagon with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one gold-level ticket to a Norfolk Admirals game (a $19 value on the day of the game). Choose from two games, both against the Springfield Falcons:
- Friday, January 28 at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, January 29 at 7:15 p.m.
The Norfolk Admirals, an American Hockey League (AHL) club affiliated with the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning, take to the frozen-over aqua-surface of the Norfolk Scope Arena in two regular-season games against the Springfield Falcons. From your seat in gold-level seating you'll have a prime view of all the slapshots, saves, and synchronized figure-skating routines that hockey fans have come to know and love. The Admirals have provided many NHL teams with players—in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, for instance, 16 former Admirals competed as members of either the Philadelphia Flyers or the victorious Chicago Blackhawks—so a ticket to an Admirals icecapade is an ideal chance to see the next generation of toothless NHL stars.
Hockey is like the magnificent mutt of the sporting world. You get the suspense of watching an object swish through a net (like in basketball or soccer), the thrill of rambunctious brawls (boxing), and the utter brutality of golf all combined into one action-packed event. Grab today's Groupon for a puck-filled mid-winter night's game of hockey.
