Ray Lewis, Scott Fujita Proffer Theories of NFL Power


Many have come to New Orleans and marveled at the futility of our utilities, but Ray Lewis is taking vitriol at Entergy to a new level. In a recent interview, Lewis put down the deer antler spray and picked up a tin foil hat when discussing the infamous power outage that left February's Super Bowl in the dark for 30 minutes. According to USA Today, the since-retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker told NFL Films that it was more than just a faulty part that turned out the lights. 


CBD Power Outage Near Superdome


Despite what Entergy's outage map may show, a replay of the Blackout Bowl is not expected tonight. According to the company's outage map, eight customers are out in the area near the Superdome, and a red line is skirting the Black and Gold sanctuary. But power is on at the stadium, where the Saints' preseason opener will be played on Friday night. Instead, it's the Entergy building that is without power.


SB Wrap: Blackouts, Shoutouts, and Boots on the Ground


The Super Bowl is over, and officials decided to have one last press conference to congratulate each other on a (mostly) successful host city performance. Mayor Mitch cracked a few blackout jokes, announced some impressive figures, and thanked everyone who contributed in the last few months.


Blackout Bowl on Tweetosphere


With football fans left in the dark for 35 minutes, they took to their thumbs and twiddled with their tweets.  The #blackoutbowl hashtag began trending almost immediately, with some blaming Beyonce’s bootylisciousness, reliving Ray Lewis’ checkered and violent past, even a video game icon wished he could’ve saved the day with his magic. By far however, the winner in the Twit-o-sphere last night was Oreo, with a short, simple and effective reminder that at least you can still dunk in the dark.
