Have you had a chance to see the best basketball team in town play live? With today’s Groupon, you can because $22 gets you one ticket to see the New York Liberty take on the Indiana Fever at Madison Square Garden on June 26 at 7:30 p.m. That's half off the normal ticket price! You'll also get cheer sticks and access to a post-game autograph session, where the players will write acrostic poems on basketballs and glossy photos.
If you haven't watched a Liberty game before, this is a great opportunity to see what the buzz is about from behind-the-net seats (sections 10–13 and 20–23). Just bring your Groupon to the will-call office to get your tickets. Come with friends and family to help cheer the Liberty on to victory. Don't forget to use your cheer sticks to block the Fever's jump shots.
The Liberty has delighted New York basketball fans since 1997. And like wine or the odds of dying in your sleep, they just keep getting better with age. Over the past three years, the incredible coaching staff has helped the Liberty rebuild with a stew of veteran players such as Shameka Christon, Cathrine Kraayeveld, and Janel McCarville.
The Liberty and Fever have an exciting history. Last year, the teams played one game in front of 19,393 fans at Arthur Ashe Stadium and another that went into triple overtime and yielded 102 points for the Liberty. If our calculations are correct, expect this year to be a six-overtime, 204-point performance by the home team. It's going to be a scorcher.
Yelpers don't really review sports teams, but many Liberty star players use Yelp to review restaurants. Check out some of the recent feedback they've left:
- “The blueberry pancakes topped with syrup, powdered sugar, and chocolate chips tasted like a three-pointer in my mouth. BOO YAH!. ” – Da Dunkie Mob
- “The combination of potatoes and bacon reminded me of a perfectly executed pick-and-roll. The bacon rolled off the screen, cut to the hoop (my mouth), and there was potato, delivering the perfect pass for an easy two points. Bacon and potato got game.” – pregnantbasketballplayer
- “SLAM DIZNUNK. You just got posterized, NY strip steak. And sauteed kale—you got schooled. Say my name, candied yams.” – killacrossovah85
