Power Outage in Beaverton, Hillsboro Keeps Oregon Fans from Watching Rose Bowl
Oregon beat Wisconsin 45-38 Monday to win its first Rose Bowl since 1917. They put on an offensive show, scoring six touchdowns while netting 621 total yards. Ducks fans had to have enjoyed watching the game, but unfortunately some Oregon residents missed at least a large part of the game because of a power outage.
KOIN-TV in Oregon reports that a car crashed into a power pole and knocked out electricity to nearly 4,000 people in Beaverton and Hillsboro Monday.
The power reportedly went out before kickoff and was out as of 5:00pm PT, which was relatively late in the game.
Talk about horrible timing. If I were living in that area, I probably would have driven to a friend’s place to watch. That just sucks. The only thing worse was when a power outage prevented thousands of fans from watching the end of the Giants-Patriots Super Bowl, only this was probably worse for Oregon fans.
