The Rams, who won only one out of 16 games in 2009, already have sold out the first two home games of the 2010 season.

The Rams announced this evening that the September 26 game against the Redskins will be televised locally.

"The club had initially asked for a 24-hour extension to meet the television requirements, but enough tickets were sold Thursday afternoon to ensure the game would be on television," the team said in a statement.

Use of the phrase "enough tickets were sold" avoids identification of the buyer. In the wake of the Neil Best rule (yeah, we may as well name the thing after the guy), it's possible that the tickets "were sold" to the Rams, at 34 cents on the dollar.
