I’ve had a few questions about the ticket situation and a possible blackout. There are approximately 1,500 tickets remaining for Sunday’s game against Carolina. The blackout deadline is 2:15 p.m. today, but if the Cards are close — and they already are — they can always ask for a 24-hour extension. My gut is still that the game sells out, and if you’re not sure if you want to go, tickets are there, so go get some.
Some other stuff:
— The Big Red Rage is tonight, and Bertrand Berry’s guest is defensive lineman Alan Branch, who notched the first two sacks of his career on Sunday night. As usual, it’s at 6 p.m. at Majerle’s Sports Grill at Chandler Fashion Center. If you can’t make it, it airs live on Sports 620 KTAR.
— Kurt Warner’s First Things First foundation is spearheading another athletic ball drive for U.S. troops overseas. The troops not only have something to do on their downtime, but they give out the athletic equipment as a form of friendly communication to the locals where they are serving. Fans can bring new or gently-used sports equipment to the game against the Panthers Sunday or other participating outlets. More info — including drop-off points — can be found on kurtwarner.org. The ball drive runs through Nov. 8.
— Pro Bowl balloting has begun, so anyone interested can vote for their favorite players, which hopefully include many Cardinals.
