When the lights went out during Super Bowl XLVII, people
became confused. It wasn’t clear what was going on, and the game was delayed
for a half an hour. When the game resumed, the Baltimore Ravens momentum
halted, shifting to the trailing San Francisco 49ers. To former Ravens
linebacker Ray Lewis, this was no coincidence.
Lewis doesn’t buy the fact that a “zillion-dollar company” has it’s lights go out. “No way,” he says.
"I'm not gonna accuse nobody of nothing — because I
don't know facts," says Lewis. "But you're a zillion-dollar company,
and your lights go out? No. (Laughs) No way.”
Lewis continued to expound on his thoughts on the conspiracy
"Now listen, if you grew up like I grew up — and you
grew up in a household like I grew up — then sometimes your lights might go
out, because times get hard. I understand that. But you cannot tell me somebody
wasn't sitting there and when they say, 'The Ravens (are) about to blow them
out. Man, we better do something.' ... That's a huge shift in any game, in all
seriousness. And as you see how huge it was because it let them right back in
The delay was ultimately connected to a faulty electrical
delay device, but it clearly did line up with the end of the Ravens’ momentum. Conspiracy
or not, Lewis shows that he still figures to provide regular entertainment even
after his playing career has ended.

Ray Lewis left the game of football a two-time champion after winning Super Bowl XLVII, but the now-infamous power outage that occurred in the third quarter almost derailed the Ravens victory, and Lewis doesn’t believe the strange occurrence was accidental.
Prior to the blackout, Baltimore was leading the 49ers by a score of 28-6. The Ravens seemed to be cruising to a sure victory...
Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Elvis Dumervil received a five year, $45 million dollar contract from the Ravens this offseason and has spent some of that on a new mansion in Parkland, Florida. Too bad he is going to have to wait a few months to actually spend some time here.
