In March 2011, the Ultimate Fighting Championship went to Seattle. Officials released 8,000 tickets for "UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis," the city's first such event. They hoped to sell enough to fill out the lower bowl at KeyArena. It did not matter that the card was not pay-per-view-worthy. Ticket sales surpassed 14,000 the day before the fight. The total attendance figure (13,741) was almost 33 percent more than the previous Fight Night record (10,267). The $1.182 million gate was the first million-plus night for the series.

The Orioles announced a sellout for yesterday's home opener, but not before they sold roughly 1,000 tickets in the 18 hours before the game.Orioles officials had been calling the game a sellout for weeks. But by last weekend, that appeared premature.The team had held back 7,500 tickets. Those seats were put into a lottery for Orioles mini-plan holders, with winners offered the chance to buy two tickets.When some of the winners turned down their seats, the Orioles found themselves with tickets to a previously sold-out game.

COLLEGE PARK - After declines in attendance at Washington's RFK Stadium over the past two years, Military Bowl officials say they hope to sell out this year's game between Maryland and Marshall at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Dec. 27. The first-ever bowl game at a service academy represents a fresh start for the bowl, which drew an announced 17,835 for last year's San Jose State-Bowling Green matchup at the 46,000-seat RFK...

It has been four decades since the game was played, but the 40th reunion of the Baltimore Colts -- the city's first championship pro football team -- scheduled for Nov. 19 at Martin's West is a sellout.Committee chairman Richard E. McCready said the banquet has a waiting list that will be filled if vacancies occur. Tickets are $150, and all places have been committed.Tickets for a luncheon the next day at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for the corporate community, which includes admission to the banquet, are $5,000 for a table of 10.All proceeds from both gatherings go to the Johns Hopkins University research program for finding a cure for ALS, known as Lou Gehrig's disease, the ailment that led to the death last year of Janice Braase, wife of former Colts defensive end Ordell Braase, whose idea it was to stage the benefit reunion.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said yesterday that a quick sellout today of an exhibition game will have "some impact" on Baltimore's chances for an NFL expansion franchise, but suggested that the city's past support of pro football and projected future support are more important.At his annual Super Bowl news conference, Tagliabue was asked whether a 90-minute sellout of the exhibition game scheduled for next August at Memorial Stadium between the New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins would have an impact on the city's bid for an expansion team.

AS I pulled into the parking lot Saturday night next to the Heritage Cineplex on Taylor Avenue, I could tell it was not going to be business as usual for the only African-American-owned independent theater in the Baltimore area. The lot was nearly full. Customers queued up to the admission window to buy tickets. The larger of Heritage's two theaters was about one-third full when I took my seat, about 25 minutes before the scheduled 7 p.m. showtime. Patrons poured in after that. When the sneak preview of The Fighting Temptations was about to start, every seat -- all 472 of them -- was taken.

LANDOVER -- Has the Washington Redskins' 31-year string of sellouts come to an end? That depends on whom you ask.The Redskins reported 78,270 tickets sold for the home opener of their new stadium yesterday, an impressive figure for any team. The team considers the game a sellout, despite having a stadium capacity of 80,116."This is a sellout," said Redskins spokesman Mike McCall.Because the only seats unsold were in the premium categories that carry an annual rental fee, they were technically not on sale for this game alone, and the team's record of selling every single-game ticket since 1966 stands, he said.

*It's a cloudless day in Tallahassee, Fla. The locals are saying it feels brisk, although the game-time temperature is expected to rise to the low 70s. You come to Tallahassee, you realize how different it is to be in a region dominated by college football. I heard war chants from my hotel well into the night. Having said that, they're not anticipating anything near a sellout crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium (capacity 82,300). *You can bet Florida State scouted Maryland tight end Matt Furstenburg, who had two touchdown catches and 104 receiving yards against Clemson.

The U.S. men's national soccer team's first appearance in Baltimore since 1997 took a couple of interesting twists this week leading up to Sunday's CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal against El Salvador at M&T Bank Stadium. The first came Wednesday when U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was the only one of the managers in this grouping to fully exercise an option to make as many as four personnel changes. While that didn't come as a total surprise considering Klinsmann's willingness to work his roster around the needs of the players' club season, what seems a bit stunning is that Sunday's games will be played before a sellout crowd in excess of 71,000.

The brick wall that the Orioles' offense has hit over the past eight games can be somewhat attributed to the quality of pitching it has faced. But as the missed opportunities - and goose eggs on the Camden Yards scoreboard - continue to mount, frustration is creeping in. Playing in front of their fifth home sellout crowd of the season Saturday, the Orioles bats went quiet again, their offense able to scrap only a solitary run in a 3-1 loss to...

It's good to be Gotye . The Australian singer/songwriter played his first show in Washington, D.C.last night - an electrifying performance for a sellout crowd at the 9:30 Club . One thing's for sure: The next time he comes to D.C., it will be at a much larger venue, like DAR Constitution Hall . Gotye (pronounced go-tee-ay) owes much of his seemingly overnight success here to " Somebody That I Used to Know ," an infectious breakup song that plants itself in your brain and refuses to leave for a few days.

The bad news, for local sports viewers, is that because Friday afternoon's Ravens-New York Giants exhibition game is not a sellout, it will not be seen live. But the good news, for local soap opera fans, is that "The Young and The Restless" won't be pre-empted after all.Team officials announced yesterday that 2,000 tickets remained unsold for Friday's game, which starts at noon. Under NFL rules, any game that fails to sell out at least 72 hours before kickoff cannot be shown live in that market.

More than three hours before game time, Stevenson alumnus Scott Murray stood amid a growing contingent of tailgaters in a parking lot overlooking the school's new $9 million stadium. He couldn't help but smile. "We started as just a small girls school," said Murray, a 2001 graduate of the one-time commuter school known until three years ago as Villa Julie College. "Football kind of puts us on the map. " The feeling was shared by many among the sellout crowd of an announced 3,500 on Saturday night, as the Owings Mills school played its first Division III home game and came away with a 46-43 win in double overtime over nonconference foe Christopher Newport.

Wale, the DMV's most recognizable rapper, officially aligned himself with Rick Ross' Maybach Music last month, and the move had his core-fanbase wondering how it would impact his music. Wale and Rick Ross isn't a natural combination: Ross constructed a (likely) false persona on cocaine sales and mansions; Wale balances backpack, Okayplayer rhymes (read: "conscious") with exclusive-sneaker name-dropping. Or so I thought. Once Wale jumped on Waka Flocka Flame's mega-hit "No Hands" — with talks of "sweating out weaves" — he proved he could sound at home on swagged-out strip-club hits.
