Who needs TV color commentators when your Twitter timeline has more wit and silliness. There was really nothing better to do during the game's power outage than to keep your eyes on your handhelds for gems like these. How many blackouts does each team get per game? Baltimore better use one soon... #superbowl47 — DaynaTrisNYC (@DaynaTrisNYC) February 4, 2013 No matter who wins, I got fatter. #superbowl47 — andy lassner (@andylassner) February 4, 2013 I suddenly wanted to be a farmer until I found out that commercial was about a truck. #superbowl47 — Kyle Tallman (@ktallmanmusic) February 4, 2013 Jack Harbaugh just told Jim Harbaugh he was adopted, and that it has absolutely nothing to do with him losing #SuperBowl47, he swears. — NOT SportsCenter (@NOTSportsCenter) February 4, 2013 Kaepernicking:Kissing your bicep.Flaccoing:Kissing Lombardi.#SuperBowl47 — Faux John Madden (@FauxJohnMadden) February 4, 2013 We need Beyoncé to bring back the Fire so we can get some lights in this dome! — Russell Wilson(@DangeRussWilson) February 4, 2013 HEY!! It's my fault the lights out! Why not? Everything is & has always been my fault! LOL! — Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) February 4, 2013 Breaking: Ray Lewis has been asked to give the lights a pep talk. — Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) February 4, 2013 Jacoby Jones' TD broke the Internet and blew a fuse at the Super Dome — Anthony Brown (@SkinsHogHeaven) February 4, 2013 I may or may not have cried during that stupid Budweiser horse commercial. #superbowl47 — Jason Dunn (@thejasondunn) February 4, 2013 The second half of SB47 was a nailbiter once the 49ers got a grip to come back from a 28-6 deficite. Maybe the power failure had a cooling effect on the Ravens. Maybe Beyoncê's halftime performance charged up San Francisco. The 'Niners outscored the Ravens 25-13 in the latter half. If the Ravens could not quite put the 49ers away, the "Niners couldn't close the deal in a game they lost in the first quarter. If only one of their first half field goals was a touchdown.... With the thrilling close, the power failure and the tweet stream, fans will be speaking of this Super Bowl for a long time, right up to the NFL Combine in three weeks.
