    Chiefs officials say enough tickets have been sold to avoid a local television blackout of Saturday night's preseason game against the Houston Texans.
    The game will be televised live at 7 p.m. on Channel 5.
    Other teams are not as fortunate. And this might be the sign of the times for the 2009 season.
    The Chiefs haven't had a regular-season home game blacked out since 1991, a string of 149 straight games.
    Maybe that strategy of requiring fans to buy exhibition game tickets if they want tickets to the Pittsburgh or Dallas regular-season games is working.

    I just got the Sunday ticket also.... so.... in the event of a blackout do we (you in IA and me in MN) still get to see the game? Do the blackout rules only affect those in the 'local' viewing area?

    We've never had any problems. Been lucky I suppose.

    What do you mean by "blackout"? Like the stadium loses it's electricity? The TV station?
