For years, football fans lobbied for a football field that looked more like a hockey rink. For $10, today's side deal gets you a sideline-seat ticket to a San Jose Wolves home game (a $25 value), or for $20, get a club-level ticket (a $40 value). All seven 2010 home games take place on Saturdays between March 20 and June 12 and begin at 7:15 p.m. at the Cow Palace in Daly City. Watch as the thrilling routes, veers, and tackles that define football take on new meaning in the confinement of a 50-yard field.
Arena football is a worthy investment for NFL fans, who must wait another six months for the ribs and shins of pig-skin fetchers to fully heal. High-adrenaline games pit athletes against one another in a walled pitch where the bended rules of out of bounds force acrobatic flips over tall walls, and punting is prohibited. Bring along friends and family for a valuable lesson in where people go during the NFL off-season.
