Power at the Superdome suddenly, oddly went out, putting the nation's biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday and interrupting a back-and-forth Super Bowl in which Joe Flacco's three touchdown passes and Jacoby Jones' 108-yard kickoff return gave the Baltimore Ravens a 22-point lead over the San Francisco 49ers that dwindled to 34-29 late in the fourth quarter.
Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones is among those NFL players who want the league and the union to finally agree on a way to do blood testing for human growth hormone.
Scenes and observations from the NFL's annual Super Bowl media day _ interviews with players and team personnel from the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers on the field at the Superdome:
Ravens safety Ed Reed isn't planning on joining teammate Ray Lewis in retirement after the Super Bowl.
Ray Lewis sure doesn't look like an aging linebacker on the brink of retirement. With 30 tackles in his last two games, the Baltimore Ravens defensive leader appears as if he could play at a high level for several more years.
Chuck Pagano is a man still loved and revered in Baltimore's locker room. Pagano was the Ravens' defensive backs coach from 2008-2010 before assuming defensive coordinator duties in 2011.
Before entering the theater, Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones said of losing Boldin: "That's really unfortunate, but that's part of the business.
"It would be fair to do blood testing," Jones added. "Hopefully they figure it out."
