While there’s been no official announcement, it appears the Colts might have sold enough tickets to be on local television tomorrow.
Colts owner Jim Irsay just tweeted out what could be construed as news of a sellout.
WHAT'S all this jibber jabber about a blackout??????—

Of course, “jibber jabber” is kind of a second language for Irsay when he gets on the amazing tweeter machine, so it’s entirely possible he’s talking about something else, or quoting some lost Dylan lyrics or something.
The Colts, like the Bengals and Packers got extensions to try to sell enough tickets to lift local television blackouts. They were within 3,000 tickets yesterday afternoon, with a local television station discussing buying some portion of the rest.
