Well done New Orleans.

Looking forward to next year's Superbowl, in a real city= New York.

If I was at that game when the power went out, I would be thinking about Bane. Where is Batman?

Forget the blackout - who won the real game?! That is, which commercials won?! Hahaha.

Anyways, maybe ya guys gonna see us next year at NY Giants Stadium! Football is a cold-weather game that tests the men who could best weather the elements!

@lostrune - Exactly. (American) Football is a autumn/winter-weather game; that's how things are supposed to be. Always playing it in either a dome or a warm-weather city gives an unnatural advantage to those teams. Ideally it would be played in the home city of one of the participants, but the television networks would never allow that, since we don't know who's playing until right before it happens.

Looks like they're blaming the power outage on the halftime show. I think the reason got a bit garbled because the halftime show was already over when the lights went out. If I were to guess, the power went out while they were finishing breaking-down the halftime show electrical cables off the field.
