The MOB just can't stop FIXING NFL football games. Remember when they knocked of Jessica Savitch because she dropped the dime on Gene Klein of the Chargers when he met with the Godfathers in Mexico. The San Fagfrisco Femininers were getting their asses completely kicked so the MOB turned the lights out. Do they do that when you're on a HOT slot machine in Vegas...a goon walks up when you're winning and tells you to move to another machine???

I really believe that the blackout was overrated as a momentum shifter as the 49ers failed on third down immediately after play was restored. It was more the failure of the Ravens who did nothing on their next possession which helped change the momentum. The 49ers actually were in the midst of a promising looking drive when the power went off and hadn't quit by any stretch of the imagination.

They blew the power out twice during the half time rehearsals. Poor prep.

The greater power outage came in the second half. It was the 49ers.

Louisiana is a heavily unionized state. Probably was a case of someone deciding 'that ain't my job' and something got overlooked in the preparations.
