NEW ORLEANS —
Joked Doug Cook, a Ravens fan from New Orleans: "They didn't pay the light bill."
Still, he admitted to a fleeting fear when the lights went out.
"I started thinking it was a terrorist attack. I was a little nervous," he said.
In the French Quarter, fans didn't appear much concerned with the power outage or delay in play.
"If we can blame Beyonce for lip syncing, we can blame her for the power outage," said Gary Cimperman of Slidell, La., with a laugh as he watched the second half of the game from a bar. "Or maybe Sean Payton called in the outage, bountygate part two."
