Seahawks ticket sales banned in California

A general view of a grounds keeper shoveling snow on the field during the game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Jets on December 21, 2008 at Qwest Field in Seattle, Wash.

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting today that the Seattle Seahawks, against whom the Chronicle's hometown 49ers will kick off for the NFC championship this weekend, won't sell tickets to the game to anyone using a credit card with a California address.

Only credit-card using residents of Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii will be tolerated at CenturyLink field, apparently.
