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 $8, you get one ticket to see the West Texas Roughnecks indoor football team take on the Oklahoma City Bricktown Brawlers on Saturday, February 21, 2011 at 7:11 p.m. at Ector County Coliseum (up to a $19.98 value). The Groupon is valid for either one adult ticket ($19.98) or child ticket ($9.98) in the select seating section.
Join the only professional football team in the Permian Basin for opening night of its hard-hitting 2011 season. Named after the state's iconic oil workers and random sightings of reptilian skin growth throughout the area, the Roughnecks stand ready to unleash staggering stiff-arms and aerial antics on the pigskin-hungry crowd at Ector County Coliseum. Be on hand as the team ushers in its division-rival— the Bricktown Brawlers—for a bone-crushing commencement to its 2011 Indoor Football League campaign. To celebrate opening night, the first 1,000 fans will receive Roughneck rally towels, great for cheering on the squad and sopping up yellow stains caused by eating an unhealthy amount of mustard-filled hot dogs, causing oddly-specific saffron sweat to drip onto your shirt.
