Super Bowl Power Outage

We apparently have a power outage at the Super Dome during the Super Bowl tonight. The announcers went out, as did half the lights. CBS went right to commercial. Moving back to a live broadcast now at 8:40 Central.

Half of the power is out. Scoreboard is out. No injuries have been reported and are returning to commercial. No announcers yet.

Update 8:44: They are still half without power. They are still trying to figure out what's going on.

Update 8:47: CBS is saying that it will be at least fifteen minutes until power comes back on.

Update: 8:50: Some lights are back on.

Update 8:55: League says 15 more minutes. More lights turning on.

Update 9:00: CBS says the stadium is becoming "brighter and brighter." Matter of minutes.

Update 9:02: A picture:

Update 9:03: And a video of the outage:


Update 9:10pm: Game is restarting after over a half an hour.
