When the real games start, it’s looking more and more likely that the games at Lucas Oil Stadium will sell out on a regular basis.

The best evidence of future sellouts comes from the fact the preseason finale against the Bengals has officially sold out.

Given that it’s the final preseason contest, which ordinarily features at most a blink-and-you-missed-it appearance by the starters, it’s a very encouraging development.

The Colts open at home on September 16 against the Vikings.  The team has exhausted a deep waiting list in an effort to sell season tickets for the first season of the post-Peyton era.
