We found out that the Rams’ Week One game against the Cardinals will be televised in St. Louis because we received notification from the team to that effect.
We found out that the Jaguars’ opener will be televised in Jacksonville because former Jags left tackle Tony Boselli, who has become an ambassador for the team’s efforts to sell out their stadium, sent us a message via Twitter.
“[I]fyou are in Jax this weekend you can catch the Jags game on local TV,” Boselli said.
Though some will brush off the sellout of all non-premium tickets as a product of Tim Tebow returning to town, there’s chatter that the first four or five home games will be televised locally.
It’s great news for the city, and for the team. The locals needed to step up, and they did.
And, yeah, I’ve picked the Jags to win on Sunday. Rosenthal didn’t.
