Do you think half the stadium's lights went out on purpose?

Were some corrupt New Orleans people behind it?

Did the mafia do it to try and win bets in Las Vegas?

Or was it the revenge of the Raven's cheerleader not permitted to travel with the team to cheer in New Orleans for the Superbowl?

What's your guess?

My tinfoil hat has been on for about a hour now...But a blackout shouldn't cause a pro team to blow a 22 point lead.

Security cameras caught Jimmy Hoffa and Bigfoot arguing over who was going to pull the plug 30 seconds before it happened.

On purpose?? Pulease.

You have no idea the panic attacks that occurred behind the scenes for that large of a malfunction on the largest watched event in the country.

It wiped out the CBS play by play booth... disrupted the flow of the game... basically 34 minutes of dead air. Nobody wants that.

The best thing that happened was for the Ravens to hold on - because if the Niners win, the power surge becomes THE main focus. New Orleans/Superdome/NFL personnel absolutely DO NOT want that scenario. Trust me on that.

Call me crazy if you will, but I definitely think there are "outside forces" at work to push some of these big games to one outcome or another. The outage came right at a time where the Ravens may have run away from the game. Seems like a big coincidental to me. I've seen other examples in big games, where officials or key players made or took unusual actions that had a huge impact on a game. FAce it, there's big money waged on these games. Its not at all outside the realm of possibility that some powerful influential people might get to officials or some of the players, so that the bets would work out "right." Players, coaches and officials have been caught taking bribes. I'm sure they don't catch everyone. Look at Lance Armstrong. Once there's big money involved, cheating is always a possibility.

Coincidence, the Ravens were getting what 3.5 or 4 points and the lights went out soon after the Ravens took a 28-6 lead, and after the lights came on the Niners made one of the greatest comebacks in Superbowl history, even though they lost at the end. It's not like people were changing channels and were going to miss expensive Superbowl ads, its all a coincidence.

So, New Orleans rebuilds its' Superdome after being ripped to shreds by hurricane Katrina.

And, on the world's stage, it drops the ball.

I'm still laughing at that.
