A hearty Wisconsin congratulations to our western neighbors on avoiding blackouts for three consecutive home games. According to PFT, the Vikings have sold out upcoming games against the Lions, the Seahawks and the Bears. I guess technically they’re not sellouts but, according to a Vikings representative, “virtual sellouts,” which, if you’re the Vikings, you’ll take in a heartbeat! You’ll remember last year as the Vikings made their playoff push, the most suspenseful part of their short run was whether they would sellout and avoid a blackout.
If you’re wondering, the Packers have sold out every game at Lambeau since…1959.
