Audiences Lose Power During Super Bowl, Some Missed Ending
The thought didn’t really occur to me since I was in a studio and couldn’t sneeze without catching the game on one of like fifty TV sets. But at one point during the first half, a Patriots fan called into the radio to tell us that the power was out in her area of Massachusetts and that she was relying on us for updates. It was at that point that I realized my place in this world. Just kidding (sorta). So when I got home from work I decided to see if I could find this story on the net somewhere. I couldn’t. Instead, I found out about like five other different outages during the Super Bowl. Sucks to have been these audiences:
+ Thousands in Brentwood NorCal lost power and missed the ending!
+ 17,000 people in Bloomington lost power
+ 1,045 people in Oahu lost power during the second half
You were probably one of the 80 million or so who got to watch the game uninhibited (save the jerkoff fan who kept yelling by your ear). But just remember how lucky you were not to have problems with your power. Missing the ending? Now that would have sucked.
