No Extension Needed: Game Between Bengals And Buccaneers Is Officially Sold Out

With all of the doom from the local media presented to us that Sunday's game would unlikely sellout, thanks to the Cincinnati Reds playing their third game in the NLDS at home and a lackluster performance against the Cleveland Browns, the Bengals once again prove that through economic turmoil, they can still sell their games out.

According to the ticket office, the Bengals have officially soldout their 55th straight game, hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. It wasn't all the fans though. According to Geoff Hobson, several area companies bought the tickets in bulk to give away this weekend.

Fox19, Kroger and Fifth Third Bank led the way in helping ensure the blackout would be lifted, and the Bengals purchased tickets for distribution to local military families. Additionally, Bud Light, AT&T and Gold Star played key roles in assisting with efforts to allow the game to be aired live.

That means that the game will be broadcast live on Fox this weekend, with homeboy Thom Brennaman calling the game. Along with the Bengals and the Reds, this weekend the University of Cincinnati will host the Miami University Redhawks at Nippert Stadium. This is going to be a great weekend for sports in the great city of Cincinnati.
