 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Despite Super Bowl expectations for Southern California's only NFL team, San Diego hasn't exactly been overtaken by Chargers fever.
The Chargers were granted a 24-hour extension by the NFL on Thursday in an attempt to sell 600 remaining tickets and lift the local television blackout of their season opener Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
The Chargers, who fell one victory short of reaching the Super Bowl last season, have until 1:15 p.m. Friday to sell the remaining tickets.
``Our streak of 30 consecutive regular-season and postseason sellouts is definitely in jeopardy,'' Jim Steeg, the team's chief operating officer, said in a statement.
The Chargers can leave San Diego after the 2008 season if they pay off about $60 million in bonds the city issued in 1997 to expand Qualcomm Stadium. The team is conducting an analysis of how much it would cost to build a stadium in suburban Chula Vista.
