When the Baltimore Ravens hoisted the Super Bowl trophy for the second time in franchise history in Super Bowl 47, the beginning and the ending was very exciting for Ravens nation.
But the power outage in the third quarter of the game still leaves many scratching heads, including Ray Lewis.
“I’m not gonna accuse nobody of nothing — because I don’t know facts,” Lewis said in a snippet of NFL Network’s “America’s Game” via USA Today.com. “But you’re a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. (Laughs) No way.”
I’m still confused as to how the NFL could let that happen. Now, the New Orleans Saints hosted the Super Bowl, and they know what goes on in that building more than anyone else, but one would have to think that one of the most important things that should be inspected before the game would be the lights, right?
If the Ravens didn’t hold on to win against the San Francisco 49rs in Super Bowl 47, the NFL would have a lot of explaining to do in that circumstance, right or wrong. They still do in some ways, but because the Ravens were blowing the 49ers out in that game, and still won despite some of their miscues late in the game, the league gets a bit of a pass.
Regardless of what happened, I’m sure Lewis is going to get a lot of flack for saying this because the popular thing to do these days is be critical of whatever Lewis says. Is Lewis right though? We will never know.
