While we scramble for solutions to the ticket sales drought in Jacksonville, a certain bewildered population of nearby football fans proffer the argument that drafting Tebow would be a cure all.
Well, if that theory were true, then certainly the signing of legendary Brett Favre by the Vikings, as a sure bet to propel them deep into the playoffs (which looks like it might actually be happening), would have the same effect there. And his revered status in the mid-West would cure the Vikings ticket sales woes, too. Right?
This according to PFT, speaks to the contrary:
"According to John Holler of VikingUpdate.com, 4,000 tickets remain for November 15 against Detroit, and 3,500 are unsold for the following Sunday against Seattle."
"So even with the Favre factor and a 7-1 start to the season, the Vikings will have to hustle in order to lift the local blackout for games."
You mean, one player doesn't cure ticket sales? That's right. One player, unless he buys all the remaining tickets for friends, will not cure ticket sales. The local community cures. And if Father Time isn't cramming the stadium in the town of his former rival, then it's doubtful that an out-of-position paladin can work miracles here in Jacksonville. Amen.
