Will the Vikes’ sell out?

According to an official with the Minnesota Vikings, only 55 percent of season ticket holders have purchased tickets to the Vikes’ playoff game next week against Philadelphia.

I always take these “Oh, dear, there may be a blackout” stories with a grain of salt. The TV stations that stand to make money on advertisements will eventually step in to buy tickets.

But it’s possible that this will be a test of whether the poor economy has hit the football fan yet.
