Super Bowl Blackout Caused by Faulty Protector Device!
Officials of Entergy New Orleans, a subsidiary of New Orleans-based Entergy Corp., said the device, called a relay, had been installed in switching gear to protect the Superdome from a cable failure between the company’s incoming power line and lines that run into the stadium.
The switching gear is housed in a building known as “the vault” near the stadium that receives a line directly from a nearby Entergy power substation. Once the line reaches the vault, it splits into two cables that go into the Superdome. – nypost
To face, it seemed like the San Francisco 49ers (or Bey’s Spectacular halftime show) turnt out the lights (for 34 minutes) at the beginning of the second half of Super Bowl XLVII at Mercedez Benz Superdome in New Orleans! The Niners just went down 28-6 after a burst from Jacoby Jones from endzone to endzone to start the second half, so even the field reporter was speculating suspicion on the Niners behalf! Ironically, it turns out it was a malfunction in an electrical device used to prevent power outages, called a relay! Check out the statement from the manufacturer of the device above!
