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.

I bet it would freak out a lot of those people in the Superdome if ALL of the lights in the stadium went out. If I recall, about 10 people died in there in 2005.

Who knows, they might be haunting the place and they did some voodoo on the electricity. New Orleans is already a spooky looking town as it is ... especially at night and if it is foggy.

Truth    

The power should have went out during Beyonce. That was boring. These Super Bowl Vegas halftime shows are getting very generic.

Beyonce's sound track blew out the lights. Had people not complained she would have not turned up the volume on the 8track

And you thought the NFL needed zebras to fix the game. The fake power outage to switch momentum makes it look honest. LOL!
