Did the Colts avoid the blackout?!

There has been a lot of talk the last few days about the possibility of the Colts/Chiefs playoff game being blacked out locally, which would include Terre Haute, if the game failed to sellout. 

The Colts asked for and received two different extetnsions to reach the sellout to avoid the black out.

Outspoken Colts owner took to Twitter to hint at a sellout......

Then he revealed that local retailer Meijer purchased 1,200 tickets to the game that will be distributed to local military families!

So, great news that we'll get to watch the game from the comfort of our living rooms and even better news that local military families will get to attend the game courtesy of a local retailer.

If you remember, it was recently announced that Meijer intends to open a store on State Road 46 in Terre Haute in the near future, so I for one say welcome Meijer and oh yeah GO COLTS!
