Introduction:Super Bowl 2013 surprised the football fans with an approximate 35 minute power outage. Half the stadium went dark along with the scoreboard that had 13.22 left in the third quarter of the game.
A scurry to restore power took place as the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens stood in shock. Power lit up the stadium again at 9:10 p.m. ET and the Ravens won the game.
Now comes Twitter sarcasm with five speculations of why the power outage happened.
A comment by a Twitter member that scored 154 retweets thus far. Bane was a dark villain in the latest Batman movie "Dark Knight Rises."
Bane sabotages a baseball field in Pittsburgh and his pursuers disappear into nothing as the field explodes. He again attacks the Gotham Stock Exchange nearly destroying it. A power outage hits the Super Dome but comes back on within an hour.
Apparently, the Super Bowl needs better lighting since one commercial during the event costs around 3 million dollars. This Twitter comment had 9,571 retweets by other members of the online social site.
Okay, we know the San Francisco 49ers wanted to beat Baltimore Ravens so they rigged the lights to cause distraction. Well, I guess it worked the other way around. ;)
The aftermath comments of Hurricane Katrina since the government took quite a while to rescue thousands of people stranded in the old Super Bowl. "Lights still not on in New Orleans Super Bowl, Obama does not care about black people!"
Someone else thinks that it was the rich people's turn to be trapped in the Super Dome. After all, the football game was all about that in the first place, right?
