Sort of an electric Super Bowl last night, don’t you think?
The 34-minute blackout in the Superdome was quite the digital divide, sort of like Moses parting the Red Sea.
The Ravens, with Joe Flacco spiraling precise pigskins, were up 28-6 when half the stadium went dark.
I wonder if the ghost of Joseph Conrad scripted this Heart of Darkness sequel.
Perhaps Beyonce’s highly charged halftime performance overloaded a breaker, but at least to me, watching Beyonce was worth the subsequent delay. Talk about a performer with juice.
That bizarre blackout turned the blowout into a shootout as Colin Kapernick began unleashing piercing passes downfield to climb back into the apocalyptic fray.
But the Niners’ furious comeback came up short in the waning minutes as the Ravens and retiring legend/lightning road Ray Lewis mounted a valiant goal-line stand against some dubious 49er play selection.
Suffice it to say that Lewis will be bellowing about that last stand until hell freezes over and turns Lucifer into Frosty the Snowman.
John bested Jim 34-31 in the Brothers Harbaugh bash, but nothing came easy in the Big Game in the Big Easy.
