Last week, the Chargers were unable to sell the last 5,000 non-premium tickets to a home game against the Bills. This week, the Chargers found a way to move the final 2,000 non-premium tickets to a home game against the Ravens.
The Chargers have announced that Sunday night’s game will indeed be televised locally, on KNSD in San Diego and KNBC in Los Angeles and Orange County.
It’s unknown whether fans actually bought the tickets, or whether the team and the local NBC affiliates came together to fork over 34 cents on the dollar for all unsold seats. Either way, folks will be able to watch the Bolts in their throwback powder-blue uniforms, in the hopes that the Ravens once again will stumble on the road against an inferior foe.
Meanwhile, the Chargers will announce tomorrow that the venue traditionally known as Qualcomm will be known, on a temporary basis, as Snapdragon Stadium.
Apparently, Snapdragon is one of Qualcomm’s products. We’d explain it further, but this is a for-profit enterprise and Qualcomm hasn’t offered us a profit for doing so.
