Are you one of those conspiracy theorists who believe that the blackout at Super Bowl XLVII was more than just an accident?
Well, Ray Lewis agrees with you. He thinks there was more to the mysterious blackout than meets the eye.
“I’m not gonna accuse nobody of nothing – because I don’t know facts,” Lewis said. “But you’re a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. No way.
“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 game.”
Following the blackout, the San Francisco 49ers nearly erased a 28-6 deficit, coming up just short on the game’s final drive.
So what do you think? Do you think the power outage was orchestrated by the powers that be?
@ProFootballTalk there is no conspiracy. I pulled the plug
