This comes as no surprise.
The Washington Redskins announced today that tickets to the NFC Wild Card Weekend playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday have sold out.
In the event there are player or visitor team ticket returns, fans are encouraged to check with Ticketmaster for availability.
With as many fans that I saw early this morning rushing to the Redskins Ticket Office at FedExField following Washington’s 28-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys late Sunday night (see above), I knew this announcement was only a matter of time.
For those who were fortunate enough to score tickets, here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s big game:

I am writing in response to Penny Ward Moser’s article A Fan for the Ages in your Sept. 9, 1987, issue. Yes, 1987. The article stated that at the pace fans were moving up the waiting list for Washington Redskins season tickets, a new prospective buyer would have to wait 353 years to get to the head of the line-which prompted me to put my name on the list. Well, I just got a letter in a burgundy envelope with a big bold CONGRATULATIONS on the front in yellow. My name reached the top in only 21½ years.
At the time that I read Moser’s article, I was single and 25 years old, had no children or money to buy even one ticket to a Redskins game, and I was living in Cincinnati. But I figured that by the time my name got to the top of the list, I’d be back home in Maryland (I am) and I’d have a family (I do) and I’d have the money to buy season tickets (therein lies the rub).
I suppose I could go ahead and buy the tickets and worry later about paying for a new water heater, the kids’ braces and a replacement for the minivan that we bought when I was 12,063rd on the waiting list. But then the tickets would probably just become another thing for the divorce attorneys to split up.
It’s a tough call-I’m still not sure what I’ll do, and I have until the end of the month to decide-but it could be worse. At least I’m not a Dallas Cowboys fan who will have to pay for a personal seat license knowing the team probably won’t win another playoff game for, I don’t know, 21½ years.

But there’s something that’s possibly even more interesting than the modern letter: Read more »
