Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets to the 2011 Ohio College Football Senior Bowl presented by the Ohio Army National Guard on April 23 at Crew Stadium in Columbus (up to a $24 value).
One of spring football's top events, the Ohio Army National Guard Senior Bowl rallies Ohio's premier college seniors to settle the North-South pigskin rivalry. Last year, the South defeated the North by one touchdown dance in a defensive battle. Coached by Ashland University's Lee Owens and Capital University's Henry Stanford (with 8-3 and 7-3 records respectively), this year's showdown between 90 of the state's top players and punting purists is sure to be a high-octane display of college football's raw athleticism.
Franklin County Children Services will serve as the event's charity, allowing foster children under the care of FCCS to attend the game and a football clinic prior to the game for free. Tickets can be exchanged for Groupons at the Ticketmaster booth at Crew Stadium on game day or prior to the game.
