Lions Reach Sellout, Avoid Blackout

The Lions have sold out Sunday's home opener against the Minnesota Vikings.  The Lions had until 1pm today to meet the deadline after they were granted a 24 hour extension by the league yesterday.  At this point, it's unclear if a sponsor actually stepped in and bailed the team out or if it was simply through fan sales.  Regardless, there should be many happy Lion's fans this weekend.  Enjoy the game!
