In the animal kingdom, football is played with cheetah running backs, buffalo lineman, and a seagull that is forced to curl up and act as the ball. Catch humanity's version of the animals' gridiron gallantry with today's Groupon for a ticket to the Tulane University football homecoming game against the Army on October 9, 2010, at 2:30 p.m. Choose between the following two seating options:
- $10 for an adult end zone ticket (a $20 value)
- $17 for an adult sideline ticket (a $35 value)
Inside the iconic Louisiana Superdome, which has hosted six Super Bowls, the Tulane Green Wave footballers will take on the Army Black Knights for homecoming. From the sideline or the end zone, you will get inspiring views of the playing field as the Green Wave attempts to match last year's spectacular 17–16 win against the Army, which came late in the game and made the team's pelican mascot squawk with glee. The stadium features large video displays to give guests a second angle on the action and simulate the feeling of sitting in an enormous sports bar, and every level has concession stands to keep fans from running out of energy and withering into fan-raisins.
Unlike other sports, football requires its players to practice ahead of time, which means Coach Bob Toledo and his squad will attempt to execute artful dodges, clever tackles, and swift sprints to the best of their ability. Encourage the footballish antics by sing-yelling the lyrics to "The Hullabaloo" and cheering the team to triumph.
To receive your ticket, you must redeem your voucher prior to 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 7, 2010, at the James W. Wilson, Jr. Center ticket office. The office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
