If you watched the Super Bowl you remember the odd black out in the second half between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. The power company blamed the outage on faulty equipment. The Ravens were winning (28-6) and had momentum when the power went out, it allowed the 49ers to regroup and make a charge.
Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis thinks it wasn’t an accident.
“I’m not gonna accuse nobody of nothing — because I don’t know facts. But you’re a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. No way,” Lewis said, via Nate Davis of USA Today. ”Now listen, if you grew up like I grew up — and you grew up in a household like I grew up — then sometimes your lights might go out, because times get hard. I understand that. But you cannot tell me somebody wasn’t sitting there and when they say, ‘The Ravens [are] about to blow them out. Man, we better do something.’ … That’s a huge shift in any game, in all seriousness. And as you see how huge it was because it let them right back in the game.”
The 49ers did charge and get within two points of the Ravens before they managed to win 34-31.
