Much of the drama this week has centered not on the game itself, but whether or not the game will be blacked out on local television because the Vikings can't sell out the Metrodome.  I attempted an explanation on why Viking fans are cautious about going to this game.  I plan to go to the game, but I intend to go early and buy tickets outside the Dome, so my one ticket isn't going to contribute to avoiding the blackout.  Sorry.
