Super Bowl power outage at Superdome halts play in third quarter
Question of the Day
Trinchero said it may have affected the momentum of the game but, given that the Ravens survived the 49ers comeback, “it didn’t affect the outcome.”
Joked Doug Cook, a Ravens fan from New Orleans: “They didn’t pay the light bill.”
Still, he admitted to a fleeting fear when the lights went out.
“I started thinking it was a terrorist attack. I was a little nervous,” he said.
In the French Quarter, fans didn’t appear much concerned with the power outage or delay in play.
“If we can blame Beyonce for lip syncing, we can blame her for the power outage,” said Gary Cimperman of Slidell, La., with a laugh as he watched the second half of the game from a bar. “Or maybe Sean Payton called in the outage, bounty get part two.”
Even out-of-towners seemed to be taking the outage in stride.
“So we had to spend 30 minutes in the dark? That was just more time for fans to refill their drinks,” said Amanda Black of Columbus, Miss.
