The Night The Lights Went Out On Super Bowl XLVII

Article written by Sportmentary - Editor in Chief Sportmentary Online Sports Talk
On Sunday night the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers played in Super Bowl XLVII. It was also the night that the lights went out on the Super Bowl. That's not a joke. The lights really went out. It was one of the crazier things witnessed at a Super Bowl ever and it happened in one of the worst stadiums in the NFL

With the Baltimore Ravens up by 22 points and minutes after Jacoby Jones returned a 108 yard kickoff return for a touchdown the lights went out. The Ravens had all the momentum. You could tell that the 34 minute delay would favor the 49ers. It allowed them to collect their thoughts and calm down.

Football still has to be played  Give the 49ers credit for coming back and making it a game. The 49ers almost pulled out the victory. It took a game winning stand by the Ravens defense with the 49ers having 1st down and goal to go from the Ravens 7 yard line to pull out the victory. It was one of the more memorable defensive stands in NFL history.

The Ravens pulled it out. Joe Flacco the game's MVP was spectacular and led the Ravens on a 5 minute plus drive towards the end of the game that led to a Ravens field goal. That out the Ravens up by 5 and the 49ers needed a touchdown to win the game. As mentioned above, the Ravens defense made a stand. They made a huge stand.

Joe Flacco was amazing this 2013 playoff season. Joe threw for 11 TDs (3 of them in the Super Bowl) and no interceptions. Joe became the leader of the Baltimore Ravens. Give the guy credit. He came up huge tonight and all playoff long. Joe Flacco is an elite quarterback in the NFL.

I was hoping that the Ravens would win this game. I'm an AFC guy and I dislike Jim Harbaugh. He's a crybaby and I hate his whining and sulking attitude and personality. I've mentioned it before, Jim Harbaugh has no class. The guy is numbskull.

I heard him interviewed after the game and he was mad and blamed the refs for what he believed to be a missed hold in the end zone. I thought the refs made the right call. Both teams could look back at missed holding and pass interference calls. It all evens out in the end.

So now Ray Lewis can retire a champion. He played like one during the playoffs and this Super Bowl. Tonight the lights went out on the Super Bowl and the San Francisco 49ers.
