Their Worst PR Blunder Since, Oh, Last Year

News Item: Vikings spokesman blames bridge collapse for slow ticket sales.

It's going to be a long, long season, I fear. But thankfully, the Vikes get to start against one team that's even more dysfunctional (the Falcons.)

UPDATE: Yes, the Vikings managed to sell out, after its TV network affiliate bought the final thousand or so seats. Randball has the best line about this:

The e-mail that just landed in our inbox from the Vikings bears this headline: “Vikings announce 97th consecutive sellout,” which is about as honest as telling people you hit a home run when really it was a lazy fly ball caught by a kindly outfielder, who then proceeded to throw the ball over the fence.
