A power outage at the Superdome in New Orleans left half the stadium in darkness less than two minutes into the third quarter of the game ... delaying Super Bowl XLVII indefinitely. 

Insert Bane joke here.

CBS has announced that stadium officials hope to have full power restored by 9:20 PM ET.

The outage took place just minutes after Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones returned the second half kickoff a record-tying 108 yards for a touchdown.

The Baltimore Ravens currently lead the San Francisco 49ers 28-6.

Tonight, in the larger cities and suburbs of the United States, when the power went out at the Superdome, utter chaos reigned! Men were seen running through the streets with their remotes screaming ""NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not during the SUPERBOWL!"

I just don't understand why everyone thinks that Beyonce is so wonderful. I cannot think of even one big hit she's ever had.

I can think of about 10 or 15 huge hits that female musicians like Madonna and Mariah Carey have had. Beyonce seems to be all flashiness, sex appeal and dancing to me. Her music just isn't that good in my opinion. It's way overrated.

I wouldn't be surprised if somebody in Beyonce's road crew used waay more electricity than they were supposed to and it caused some circuits to get fried or maybe a transformer blew up.

Beyonce's show definitely looked like it used a lot of electricity on flames, a multiple light stage, lasers, smoke, neon lights, etc.

I believe she was live. The show was the same old stuff she's been doing for years. Shake her ass she her hair. SOS different day.


The theatrics and the stage were by far the best part of the show.


She does nothing for me and she dodged a bullet when the power went off. If it had happened during her set, she would have been screaming conspiracy to high heaven.


Glad now we won't hear from her for a while unless she decides she was amazing.


Obama should be upset that she didn't put in the same effort for the SSB and him.
