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.

That was weird! I've never watched football, but got curious and tuned in - just in time for the power outage! I'm starting to 'get' the game and I think I like it! Go 49ers??

Carl, coming out of his janitor's closet, to his boss:
"Hey boss, you want me to work overtime tonight?"
Boss:
"No Carl, we're on a strict budget here at the Superdome. Leave as scheduled and don't forget to turn off the lights."

Ravens were on a roll, then get shut down by a mysterious power outage. you dumb enough to think this was an innocent happening? Goes to show what a DUMP New Orleans is. NEVER hold another important game there and while i am on a roll kick the Saints out of the NFL
