Marlins turning to Groupon to sell tickets to home opener

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

There's nothing particularly unusual or condemnable about a team turning to flash-mob discounter Groupon in order to sell tickets. But damned if we won't use that as a cudgel with which to beat on the hapless Marlins!

Now, now: Let's not all crash the server at once.

On the upside, you get a merchandise voucher and refrigerator magnet as part of the package. So there's that.
