New Orleans — Power went out at the Superdome early in the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday with the Baltimore Ravens leading the San Francisco 49ers 28-6. The majority of lights failed shortly after Jacoby Jones returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown. There was 13:22 left in the quarter. The teams remained on the field, with players stretching and trying to stay warmed up, including the Ravens' Joe Flacco and Ed Reed. Cheerleaders kept going through their routines There was a public address announcement for fans to stay in their seats.

WelcoThird World. Even South Africa could run a World Cp final and figure out power needs.

Same thing on MNF at Candlestick recently and in our neighborhood we get clear day outages every couple months.

Trillions spent on "infrastructure" and we have 15th century windmills and burn half our corn crop.

The game plan is a lower syandard of living for all.

That power outage probably came when the stadium´s smart meter reached the red zone of too much electricity being used, so it atomatically shut off the electricity.

By way of coverage on Radio or Television, I’ve witnessed all 46 of the previous Super Bowls. This year, I decided to not subject myself again to a bombastic barrage of glitz, glitter, razzle-dazzle and raunch, otherwise known as “The Super Bowl Half-Time Show.” Instead, I passed the (half) time by catching up on a few minor chores which needed attention. I’m glad I did. I plan to do likewise during the half-times of the next 46 unless their producers plan to ‘unspectacularize’ them by mercifully toning them down at least a reasonable number of notches. I know what I did was radical, but not only do I not care, I highly recommend it.

What a pathetic shambles. Except for Paul Harvey and the Budweiser horse, the
"commercials" were slutty dreck. Thanks to all the interruptions, the game had no rhythm or continuity. The half-time show was a screaming, shouting, strutting no-talent black hooker. NFL stands for a lot of things these days... good clean family entertainment isn´t one of them.

Here they are in the Greatest Music City in the World
where kids start jammin at a tender age-

Home of Louis Armstrong and many, many other fabluous musicians, both living and dead

and for a musical halftime interlude they hire a talentless squawker dressed up like a cheap chippy-jumping around like a chicken with her head cut off-

No wonder God caused the lights to go out.

I thankfully didn´t watch all of the "Super" Bowl. Both of these teams are nowhere near my favorites and I had to wake up early to go to work. I heard this morning on the news that the power outage happened, the half time show sucked and the Edgar Allen Poe Ravens won. Big whup! I read too that the deadhead obama voters are trying to blame the blackout on Governor Jindal. What rubbish. All this is is the former mayor School Bus Chocolate City Nagin´s New Orleans chickens coming home to roost.

The ugly comments on this thread about a city with so much of America´s beauty and history are inappropriate... and dare I say ignorant... sure it´s run by Dems... but Bobby is doing his level best to bring growth and industry to the entire state... As were My Ravens... [and don´t get me started on B´more... and it´s history...]

Next time you are near New Orleans, instead of flying into Kenner... come across the 32 mile Causway across Lake Ponchetrain at dawn... or the back roads through the beautiful bayous from Baton Rouge... Or past the still exquisite and gracious plantation homes before Gretna... and listen to a CD of Harry Baby [Harry Connick Jr who was playing sweet jazz as a lad of six] ... then have a beignet and coffee at Cafe du Monde in the Quarter as a lone sax plays Amazing Grace at noon... and get back to me...

For the sake of energy efficiency the lights were on a motion sensor and San Fran wasn´t moving the ball enough.

A couple of guys got up on a ladder and waved their hand in front of the sensor and the lights came back on.

Thank you, # 52. I was not going to post as there is so much ignorance flowing on this thread I thought, what’s the use!
Yes, there are a lot of liberals in New Orleans, partly due to history and partly a result of being a port city. I live within the city limits of New Orleans and I am represented by Senator David Vitter and Congressman Steve Scalise, two very conservative members of Congress. Mary Landrieu, our token Democrat, is one of the few Democrats holding a state wide office in Louisiana. The New Orleans metropolitan area is mostly conservative.
This weekend I saw millions of happy people enjoying a super bowel weekend like never before. It was a weekend long party no other city could duplicate. Now we get serious about Mardi Gras, another event no other city could duplicate. A few have tried in the past, but each time it ended up in a riot.
I’ve lived in other cities and my career has me traveling around the US. New Orleans is a special place unlike any other city!

Bravo, #52. Well said. Thank you.

There is an overabundance of ignorant locale-bashing on these boards. I live in SoCal and see it all the time.

It used to bug me; I don´t much care now. "You can´t stop monkeys from chattering," as my dad once said when my sister and I wouldn´t shut up.

Mardi Gras has been hijacked by abusive drunken slobs, yes -- as have so many other once-great American traditions. But New Orleans is a true American treasure, definitely.

Bloomberg News, by Kathleen Miller    Original Article

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

Reports are flying across the Internet about the possibility that Apple’s satellite map app just snapped a pic of the elusive “Loch Ness monster.” Long speculated to be a relative of the dinosaur-era plesiosaur, many have chalked the rumors up to baseless monster talk. Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
