Bengals announce game against the Lions is officially a sellout

No way this game is going to sell out. No chance in hell. How in the world could the team push 6,000 available tickets against a team like the Lions in a few days? The team applied and received a 24-hour extension to sell the game out so it would be on television. Then, the Bengals official twitter account tweets.

Blackout lifted for Sunday's game vs. Lions. Game will be broadcast locally on Fox 19. 51st straight Bengals sellout.

Well, how the hell do you like that? The Bengals pushed over 6,000 tickets and got this game sold out for the locals to watch on the comfortable couches or favorite drinking establishment. In other news, I think the game-day meal is going to be tacos, baby. And as luck would have it, we have a Brennaman broadcasting the game. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

Josh Katzowitz tweets (isn't Twitter frickin' great?) the list of sponswers who helped the blackout.

Long list of sponsors who helped avoid the Bengals blackout. Fox19, 5/3 bank, Kroger, Bud Lite, JTM and Ohio Casualty.

Joe Reedy tweets (yea, Twitter is frickin' great) that Krogers is planning on giving tickets away.

Bengals tix giveway at five Krogers locations. Two tickets each to the first 50 people who donate at least 20 non-perishable food items
