Super Bowl Power Outage: Act of Terrroism?

From Eric Dondero:

At 8:40 pm est. the lights went out at the Super Bowl stopping the game between the 49ers and Ravens.

MyFox8 out of Greensboro, NC reports:
The scoreboard and lights went out with 13:22 left in the third quarter. The Ravens lead the 49ers 28-6. The cause has not been determined. During the CBS broadcast, players could be seen laying on the field and stretching to stay loose in anticipation of a possible lengthy delay.
No cause has been given. But given Al Qaeda's history of striking on big dates, could this be an act of Islamic terrorism?

Adam Clark Estes at AtlanticWire.com remarked, "Why Did the Lights Go Out at the Super Bowl?":
As players sat down to stretch and officials jogged into a huddle to figure out what to do next, there wasn't a terrible amount of information about what caused outage. Surely, the possibility of a terrorist attack crossed some people's mind, though that was quickly ruled out.
UPDATE!

Various news reports, police smell gas at stadium.

Tweet from Annibel Jones, Corporate Attorney, OKC:
Annabel Jones ‏@CrescentSooner Am I the only one who thinks "power outage at Super Bowl" = terrorism? Why no discussion of possibility on broadcast?

Could have been a commercial for NBC's show called Revolution.

Or a blown breaker.

Or a mystical act of the Almighty.

The Right Guy said...

I guess if we can't explain it, magic works.

Rational Nation USA said...

Or mystical spirits from the hunting grounds of the great beyond where the Great White Buffalo roams.

The Right Guy said...

I don't believe in magic.

Rational Nation USA said...

Nor do I. Or spirits either.come to think of it.

"Do you believe in magic?" A crappy pop song from the 1970s. The Orleans I believe. Or, maybe Loving Spoonful.
