San Diego Chargers get blackout lifted for Thursday night's game against Seattle Seahawks

Harry How

Hurray! Chargers fans get to watch their football on TV while it's actually happening.

This morning, we found out the San Diego Chargers received an extension to sell out the remaining 1,800 general tickets to Thursday night's game against the visiting Seattle Seahawks. Tonight we found out they have sold enough tickets to air the game live in San Diego.

Chargers.com reports:

The San Diego Chargers have sold enough tickets to lift the local blackout for Thursday night’s preseason matchup between the Chargers and the Seattle Seahawks at Qualcomm Stadium. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. The game will be shown live in San Diego on KFMB-TV, Channel 8 and in Los Angeles and Orange County on KCBS-TV, Channel 2. Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts and former Chargers linebacker Billy Ray Smith will call the action.

This is great news for those of us that were hoping to watch football while still awake on a weeknight. Also, do note that there are still some select tickets for sale, so if you want to take the game in in person you can do so.

It was pretty much a given that this game wouldn't be blacked out when the team received the extension, but as a Chargers fan I'm conditioned to expect the worst. This is good news because it would have been ugly to kick off the Telesco/McCoy era with a blackout, especially in the wake of the Danario Alexander news.
