The big question on everyone’s mind Sunday after the second half of Super Bowl XLVII began was, “Who turned out the lights?!” Superbowl authorities along with Entergy have agreed to use an outside firm to investigate what caused the power outage that stopped the game for approximately 34 minutes.  One thing is for sure, it was in fact not Beyonce’s fault.

SMG, the power company that manages the Mercedez-Benz Superdome, along with Entergy New Orleans, release a joint statement on Tuesday stating that both parties agreed to hiring an outside agency to investigate what caused a half of the stadiums lights to go out during the 3rd quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Fransisco 49ers on Sunday February 3rd.

There were records released on Monday from earlier in the season that indicated a potential “chance of failure” at the Superdome. Obviously no one could predict when this could become a problem, but of course millions of people around the world sat for 30 or more minutes waiting for the game to begin again. I’m glad I had lot’s of snacks and food to keep me occupied. And of course the thought of Beyonce’s previous performance made it all worth the wait.

$1 Million in improvements have been made at the Superdome, but I’m gonna guess that rewiring the electrical system wasn’t in the budget?
