Power outage delays Super Bowl

Last night, during the biggest football game of the year, a power outage struck the New Orleans Super Dome and delayed the game for 34 minutes.

"All of our distribution and transmission feeds going into the Superdome were operating as expected," said Philip Allison, a spokesman for Entergy New Orleans said.

He went on to say that the blackout was likely caused by a failure in equipment maintained by stadium staff. Even the CBS broadcast booth went silent.

As you probably already know, the Ravens went on to withstand a 49ers rally and win, 34-31.
