Vikes Avoid Home Opener Blackout

I am not sure what over 2,000 people saw in Sunday’s opening game in San Diego to cause them to jump up and buy tickets to this week’s game against the Bucs, but they did.

Last week, the Vikings had 3,000 tickets remaining to the home opener against Tampa Bay and Jeremy Fowler reports that the team avoided a local blackout and have under 1,000 tickets remaining.

Assuming the rest of the tickets sell this will be Minnesota’s 137th consecutive sellout.

Vikings Daily is still somewhat in “beta” mode, but I do plan on trying to host a live chat here during Sunday’s game. So, if you weren’t one of those fans that purchased tickets to the game, I hope to see you here.
