Vikings extend sellout streak to 3 more games (http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/69686287.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUUZ)

MINNEAPOLIS - The next three Minnesota Vikings home games are assured to be televised locally.

...

Vikings chief marketing officer Steve LaCroix says there are less than 1,000 tickets remaining for the the Lions and Seahawks games as of Tuesday afternoon. The Bears game has "very limited" availability.


Good to hear.
I wasn't surprised about the Lions or Bears games, but I was a little worried about the Seahawks.
Crappy team not in our conference + tough economy = hard ticket sales.
Glad the purple faithful turned out!

The Bengals and Giants games will almost certainly sell out as well, as they both will likely have playoff implications.

I had to laugh at the trolls that posted comments on PFT.com on this story calling us fans the worst in the league.

As if they know anything about going to a piss poor bad venue, time after time after time after time...
And the fact that PFT was trying to stir the pot.

Just because I like pointing out silly things ... They are in our conference ;D

I knew what you meant though.

Nice to see all of these games selling out.

There is NOTHING wrong with the seating bowl in the Dome.
There is everything wrong with the tight concourses and bathroom situations, but those can be dealt with if you think ahead.

Nothing big wrong with the bowl.. I agree.
But the concourses and bathrooms SUCK.
And the environment outside of a really successful season ('98 and potentially this year) isn't anything to write home about either.
The seat sizes are small along with the crampiness.

The Bank has HUGE concourses and there's never a line for the bathrooms.
At least, no lines that end up out on the concourses.
I normally would not be complaining.. but ever seen this season at TCF, I've appreciate quality venues MUCH more now.

That's very true. But be careful when going to the bathroom, TJack may throw a pass to berrian for a 99 yard TD. LOL
