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 to the wall-slamming, stick-banging, puck-flying, figure-skating fun of a San Antonio Rampage game. For $8, you get a lovely plaza-level, red-section seat, a $16 value, at the Rampage's April 8 West Division matchup against the Houston Aeros, which takes place at 7 p.m. at the AT&T Center. Your ticket also includes access to the private Saddles & Spurs Clubs, where you can enjoy sandwiches, freshly grilled items, and freshly refreshing beverages.
Cheer on MacGregor Sharp, Brett MacLean, and Kyle Turris as they attempt to maintain their team's cold tyranny with swift passes, speed-of-sound shots, and gentle camaraderie composed of deep, meaningful silence and smoldering eye contact.
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), the tear-stained emotional fragility of ice skating or football, and the utter brutality of golf all combined into one explosive, sequin-studded event. Take your whole family or only your estranged dog walker. Hockey's family-friendly nature and pro-fisticuffs political leanings also make it an ideal activity for antsy out-of-town relatives visiting for the annual "It's April!" celebration of the month of April and all that April stands for as a month.
This Groupon includes the traffic-management fee of $0.35 per ticket.
The Express-News recounts this recent thrilling game against the Peoria Rivermen:
- The Rampage used a three-goal outburst in the second period to bury the Peoria Rivermen 5-2 in front of 4,534 fans...Sullivan was the trailer on a rush led by Kyle Turris, whose shot was stopped by Peoria netminder Joe Fallon. But Sullivan followed the shot to slip in the rebound...Less than five minutes into the third, defenseman Shaun Heshka put a well-directed laser from the Peoria blueline high into the Rivermen cage for a 4-1 lead...David Spina added an empty-net goal with 32 seconds left to seal the Rampage's fourth win in five games. – Tony Uminski
