Announcers on the radio blamed Beyonce for the power outage at the Super Bowl

Unbelievable.

I was in my car on my way home from a Super Bowl party, listening on the radio. I have no idea who these announcers are but they said the outage was probably due to Beyonce's half time show.

Obviously no IQ test required to be a sports announcer on the radio.

1. Actually it could be true

I've worked at huge concerts and the juice does have its limits. The more acts perform the more shakey it becomes, the bigger the need for juice of an act the bigger the risk.

8. Let's blame it on the union guys

They can take it. They're used to being beat up.

11. Wow you are so very supersensitive

what a connection you made there

In fact I mentioned it knowing that they could be criticized but you made sure to turn it into an attack

12. TV just said it was from the feed coming into the stadium.

So that does make sense.

7. It was a joke.

Her show did use a lot of juice so technically I guess it's possible. No need to get upset over a meaningless comment.

9. It is very likely true to a certain extent

Although Beyonce herself would not be to blame, I am sure she did not create her own light show. The people who did design the stage setup for her show may well be partially responsible however, the infrastructure was also not great to begin with so the owners of the dome likely hold responsibility as well. I expect next year they will scale back on the amount of juice they use for the halftime show.

I almost wish I had my tv hooked up so I could watch now, the power outage interests more than the game.

14. emergency plan to protect the children from any form of a nip slip

They learned from Janet just how damaging nip slips were so in case of said nip slip the lights would go off to protect the children from the first thing they played with in life. In America we protect the children from the deadly nip slip, guns, not so much.
