Remember the power outage during the Super Bowl? Yep, the one that forced you to sit there and actually talk to the people you were watching the game with. Or was it the one that enabled you to head back to the table with all of the food to stuff your face some more. It was also the one that forced us to listen to CBS’ failure to investigate anything and let Jim Nantz mumble irrelevant cliches. Yeah, you know the one.
The Minnesota Timberwolves thought it’d be all hunky dory to turn off the lights at the Target Center Monday night and fake like they had a power outage of their own. And I’m sure they received a whole bunch of “not again”‘s amongst the 13,000 in attendance. The television announcer was totally into it as you’ll see in the clip. With an 18-27 record thus far, it’s amazing that half of the 13,000 didn’t get up and leave.
