Baltimore Ravens Win 2013 Super Bowl by Maxymilliano(m): 7:19am On Feb 04, 2013
Baltimore Ravens win Super Bowl 34-31 but have to withstand San Francisco 49ers comeback after power outage stops play for 34 minutes.

The lights went down on Ray Lewis's controversial and remarkable NFL career on Sunday night, the Baltimore Ravens linebacker signing off with a victory at Super Bowl XLVII. But on an eventful night at the Louisiana Superdome, the linebacker's story played second fiddle to that of a more literal kind of black-out.

The San Francisco 49ers trailed the Baltimore Ravens 28-6 when a power outage at the Louisiana Superdome provided Super Bowl XLVII with its defining moment. Less than two minutes had been played in the second half when the stadium's main electricity supply was cut, triggering emergency lighting. For the next 34 minutes, confusion reigned – a reduced public address service barely was audible in much of the stadium, though it was delivering little clear information in any case.

San Francisco handled the disruption better than their opponents, scoring 17 unanswered points and shaving Baltimore's lead to two once play resumed. Baltimore, though, clung on for their second Super Bowl victory. In the end it was not Lewis who had been the star so much as the Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco and receiver Jacoby Jones.

Flacco said: "I don't think it's going to settle in for a while. We don't make anything easy. it was a hard fought game on both sides. I think we gave the country a pretty good game to watch. Not to our liking necessarily, but that's the way it goes sometimes and that's the way we do things."Flacco and Jones were the players responsible for building the Ravens' lead.

Flacco, who would later be named the game's Most Valuable Player, threw three first-half touchdown passes – the last of them to Jones – while the receiver followed that up by returning the opening kickoff of the second-half 108 yards for a score. In doing so he equaled the NFL's all-time record for longest ever return. For a New Orleans native playing in his old hometown, this was a special evening.

It was a remarkable night for John Harbaugh, too. The Ravens head coach was able to celebrate a victory over his own younger brother, Jim, who holds the corresponding position with the 49ers.

The pair shared an embrace on the field before the game, and then another as the confetti fell at the end.

Synopsis of The Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football in the United States, culminating a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year.

The day on which the Super Bowl is played, now considered by some a de facto American national holiday is called " Super Bowl Sunday ". It is the second-largest day for U.S. food consumption, after Thanksgiving Day. In addition, the Super Bowl has frequently been the most watched American television broadcast of the year.

The Super Bowl is also among the most watched sporting events in the world , almost all being North American audiences, and is second to football (soccer)’s UEFA Champions League final as the most watched annual sporting event worldwide.

Because of its high viewership, commercial airtime during the Super Bowl broadcast is the most expensive of the year. Due to the high cost of investing in advertising on the Super Bowl, companies regularly develop their most expensive advertisements for this broadcast.

In addition, many popular singers and musicians have performed during the event's pre-game and halftime ceremonies because of the exposure.

Below is picture of Singer Beyonce and Destiny Child performing during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on February 3, 2013, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

you didnt need to comment.the fact that you watch nothing more than soccer doesnt mean others are as laid back as you are.besides,hypocrisy is when you watch the english premiership and begrudge those that watch the NFL.i for one cannot endure sitting 90minutes to watch a soccer match,i rather hear the scores after but i can sit through a tennis match for four hours.its all about preferences.i can gladly say i sat through the superbowl and it was a great game of football

@topic......i wasnt really looking forward to this bowl as i was the giants-patriots game of last year.however,twas a great game of football.great fight from the 49ers and no better way for lewis to take his bow.

Don't even compare the power outage that happened during the game to Nigerian power aoutages. It was small section of the stadium that had power outage due to power surge. It was rectify about thirty minutes later. Didn't you see power in most part of the stadium during the power outage? As a matter of fact, the game could have continued because there was power in more than 90% part of the stadium. Everything was still visible during the outage.

I'm really happy because a team from Baltmore won it. It's interesting to note that the coaches of the two teams are brothers and the family vowed to spend more time with whichever of the two brothers that loses the game.
