Sports played with spheres are easier to master than rectangular sports, such as Rubik's cubing and throwing bricks into windows. Circle fun with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one general admission ticket to a Victoria Shamrocks lacrosse regular season home game at Bear Mountain Arena on Old Island Highway (up to a $17.50 value) on July 22 or 29. Children ages 4 and younger receive free admission. A general admission ticket is valid for any seat not already occupied by a season ticket holder or assigned-seat ticket holder.
Led by this season's high-scoring trio of Corey Small, Rhys Duch, and Jamie Shewchuk, the Victoria Shamrocks expect to sling themselves into the Western Lacrosse Association playoffs. With the defensive keenness of newly acquired goaltender Chris Levis, the Shamrocks may just pass, block, and salsa dance their way toward another Mann Cup appearance. With a general admission ticket, spectators at any of the two remaining home games⎯Friday, July 22 against Burnaby and Friday, July 29 against Nanaimo⎯have some latitude in where they can sit or choose to stand around the concourse to narrow their proximity to the Shamrocks' mascot, Rocky. Free parking allows visitors to save money for snack-bar treats and bring their caravan of covered wagons at no extra cost.
