From the AP:

The Detroit Lions' home game against the Cleveland Browns will be blacked out on local TV. Lions spokesman Bill Keenist confirmed Thursday the team did not sell 7,000-plus tickets that were available the previous day.The game featuring two 1-8 teams will be not be shown on TV in the Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw-Flint and Toledo, Ohio, markets.

Really, it's for the good of all people in those two markets.

But we end the day with this rather strange, untoward and, frankly, gross ticket request from a Madison-area Craigslist poster in regards to an upcoming Badgers/Duke basketball game. (Note: There will be a little salty language, as well as an uncomfortable concept, involved).
