Pats-Fins and Texans-Fins look to be BLACKED OUT
CBS Miami is reporting there are 3,000 unsold tickets to the Fins-Pats Monday Night opener in a week. And there are 15,000 unsold tickets to the Fins-Texans Week 2 contest. While not selling out the Houston game in Week 2 is a shame, its not totally surprising. As the Fins have been a dreadful team for almost a decade now and with a rough economy and a lockout fresh on the minds of the fans, some/many fans have had enough when it comes to this franchise. But, not selling out the Home Opener Week 1 on Monday Night vs the mighty Patriots and Tom Brady, that is shocking. And it gives those in the media who call Miami the "WORST SPORTS TOWN IN AMERICA" more ammunition. The fact this is even a possibility might prove that Miami is the worst sports town. This is the Patriots for crying out loud and you can't sell out a Primetime game vs them? Just embarrassing.
