Vikings Blackout Avoided; Team Announces Metrodome Sellout for Playoff Game

Threats of a blackout for the Minnesota Vikings’ first home playoff game since 2000 have officially gone away. The team announced Saturday afternoon that they have sold their remaining tickets, and Sunday’s date with the Philadelphia Eagles is now officially considered a sellout.

The team’s cause certainly wasn’t helped by the failing economy, and it was really hurt when some 45 percent of Viking season-ticket holders passed on playoff tickets, apparently choosing to believe that coach Brad Childress or quarterback Tarvaris Jackson would find a way to blow his team’s chances.

Of course, the near-miss apparently was enough to cause Vikings owner Zygi Wilf to again complain about the team’s stadium situation. That seems like a really good idea. I’m sure plenty of people in a state that is facing a huge budget deficit are going to be sympathetic to a sports owner whining for public dollars to build a new stadium.

(I don’t mean to dismiss the role that the Vikings’ crappy stadium plays in their struggles to sell tickets, but come on.)

Good thing they had Jared Allen make that video, huh?
