The NFL has given the Vikings one last chance to sell out the Metrodome for tomorrow's playoff game against Philadelphia. The Vikings have until 4:30 p.m. today to sell the remaining 3,100 tickets to avoid a television blackout in local markets. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have sold enough tickets to today's game against Atlanta for it to be televised in the Phoenix area. The NFL gave the team two 24-hour extensions, the last expiring yesterday afternoon. About 2,400 tickets remained yesterday morning.
You may see this more and more if the economy continues to worsen.
People are bucking down and are realizing that they can save several hundred dollars and watch the game at home.
