Power outage shuts down Super Bowl in New Orleans

As I’m sure you have not heard at thing about already, the Super Bowl was delayed Sunday by a power outage at the Mercedes- Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Super Bowl

The big game was delayed for 35 minutes. A CBS sports reporter who had talked to NFL officials said they attributed the outage to an “outside power feed coming into the stadium that suddenly went dead.” Each team had a warm- up period before the game was picked back up exactly where it left off.

The audio also briefly went out, and viewers could not hear the television announcers, for better or worse.

Up to the point of the delay- with around 13 minutes left in the third quarter- the Baltimore Ravens were routing the San Francisco 49ers, leading 28-6. In the next seven minutes of play, the 49ers shrank the lead to 28-20.

Much of the talk going in to the game centered on Raven Ray Lewis’ last game, as well as the competing Harbaugh brothers coaching the opposing teams.

The Superdome housed thousands of residents seeking shelter from Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and was extensively damaged itself. The building was then closed for months afterward.

Beyonce performed at halftime.
