NFC Title Game Sells Out in 6 Minutes

From: Pro Football Talk.com

Last weekend, the Cardinals needed two extensions in order to sell enough tickets to allow their wild-card game against the Falcons to be televised locally.

With the Cardinals unexpectedly hosting the NFC Championship, the tickets moved a bit more quickly.

The team has announced that the stadium sold out in only six minutes.

Earlier in the day, coach Ken Whisenhunt addressed the fact that the Cards unexpectedly scored another playoff game at home.

“Obviously we are excited that we have another home game to host the NFC Championship at University of Phoenix Stadium,” Whisenhunt said. “It is huge for this organization, for our players, and especially for our fans.

“After our Wild Card win here against Atlanta, I did my victory lap around the stadium because I thought it might have been the last chance for me to show my appreciation to our fans. As we all know now that was incorrect and I’ve never been happier to be wrong.

“With the Philadelphia victory, we have this opportunity to host the NFC Championship against the Eagles. I know it is going to be a great atmosphere and it is going to be electric. The home field advantage is huge for us because we don’t have to travel. Knowing the environment and knowing the way our fans have supported us gives us such an advantage and that is exactly what we want. We couldn’t ask for anything better for an NFC Championship game.”

    Hey, everyone’s loving the CARDS, even my new favorite website has them featured — STUD U (Sports Trivia Updated Daily University – http://www.stud-u.com ). Some real good current event questions. I’ve waited 20 years for Cards to play meaningful games. One more win baby and we’re in the SB!
