And minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL for prisoners it's February -- -- fourth -- 2013. It's just. Monday that it's still pretty super Monday daddy is trying to do her past. -- because it's not like the game ended and everybody here is celebrating the Super Bowl got capital city you know. Now in fact most of them idol thing ever went to bed. It's still out February -- Party and enjoying haven't -- I think momentarily when the sun comes up. Usually go oh goodness the out we need to go to sleep and -- morning. -- -- you're -- it was just rustling and bustling in them that was when I take a minute for the gas there's still out there on. Lots of pickups drop offs. Walken and everything wandering locking bill the sentencing and then -- -- -- -- in other -- you'd really seem like it was almost 21 Baltimore fans that -- does yes it did in the city all week last week. So I think that from a standpoint of who was gonna party harder. After the game with Baltimore winning. The ravens fans. Apparently outnumbering the 49ers fans at least in my observation. Highway I think damage the party in the -- hard and though little bits reader to. All -- -- It's been a great Ron it was a lot of fondness. The power outage I think it is the question mark on the entire saying it now -- we need answers we need to find out what happened. You know here's the real concern -- -- is. Told Friday. From someone very close to the discussions about New Orleans hosting the Super Bowl again and when he eighteen. For the cities cities tries Centennial 300 anniversary. The founding of the city of war that it was looking -- -- -- very good for New Orleans to get the big game began in just five years. How if at all Wimbledon will power outage at the dome impact that well I think there are questions that have to be answered. Before everyone's going to be comfortable saying yeah now and we you know you can handle it that. You know there was an on precedent demand for electricity -- building are -- pure and people using more divisive more coverage than ever a bigger half. Halftime show I mean. They had never needed that kind of electricity before and I've got to tell -- I talked with someone who is very very. Well what to say is in senior management at the super. I'm right. In this person told me that they'd been having problems with the electrical. Told me that during the build up to the superdome as more and more. Networks for plugging in the halftime show is being plugged in everything was being plugged in -- playing in trailers -- plugging in sets their plugging in stages of their play in light their plugging and you know. Everything everything in its steam and unprecedented well this year and just seem bigger I -- in every way. Yet they had an engine they had electrical engineers designed the power play -- for the super dale. And the problem was it was very difficult to make sure that every single technician coming in from every network every production -- And every organization every group that was plugging stuffing -- To make sure they were following the distribution plane. And they were telling me on Friday that during the week they'd have a circuit go down here or there where Yahoo! rolled lights. You know under the concourse for example Mike allotment -- go reset that circuit. Or they have a little circuit here are little circuit over there go down and that after resent it. And this individual to -- they were nervous about it but they had electrical engineers there working on it and had a plan and out and so I do not come as a surprise. Me. It is the managers over at the superdome that it was the night the lights went out -- the Super Bowl and this -- after a perfect I mean I think. Just from everything that I urgency as far as them. Whether in the people in the coverage and then the game well what green and a fabulous game on top all that and then IE -- appointments. -- But I think it may end up being in Austin -- expect to happen and and make sure it happening again and plan. Keep it from happening. The good thing is the ravens are complaining because they won the game. That is Baghdad us again at the 49ers they can't complain because they've played. Lights out pardon upon after the power job eight words that do enough that before the power outage. Afterwards they weren't I -- Now so neither team -- fan base can complain to that house if the ravens had lost. God help us all. On how it. The fury evidence are you're would have been fan base team and more we become -- down and New Orleans in the superdome now because of them the list. Thank goodness it didn't happen -- beyoncé you can get to that like you are well. I would not have stemming commercials coming up at your forecast in sports after the -- To start the second half. -- by Jacoby Jones eight yards deep brings it out the end zone left hash mark 101527. Tackles. -- -- -- -- -- Do with this guy. There you -- include -- go live very well. Go home and took the old -- 100 and if you. About that call on the ravens radio network economy count a local boy from new -- lands. Shining bright at the Super Bowl in the Mercedes-Benz superdome I'm Dave -- the early edition of WWL first news -- an instant Graham FaceBook Twitter. All buzzing like crazy with pretty funny stuff. During the power outage and after about who caused it and why. On target people ran to their computers and made all kinds of malaria takes years but one of my favorites is one that says. Saints coach Sean Payton messing around an electrical box. And it says Peyton newsroom fans then that. That was circulated really quickly and not pretty. Funny what was -- did you see anything really funny about what caused the power attitude joke about it that you really like there was this call me to six 1870 or texted me. It 87870. Coming up we'll talk more about the commercials outside Yahoo!'s top ten and to itemize favorite commercials. From the Super Bowl right now though it's your forecast.

Hey Dave how's it going this morning I see you wearing your ravens purple is celebrating. Somewhat. You know out with a nickel state.

Called an -- late rally by the San Francisco 49ers to win 3431. In Super Bowl 47 in the Mercedes-Benz superdome. And the president said he wasn't simply the setting for the big game a couple of New Orleans natives played major roles in the recent victory. Jacoby Jones a particular. Came up. It won't be job it's. That 56 yard touchdown which it was jones' only catch of the night but he also returned the second half kickoff 108 yards for his second touchdown of the night. Another Crescent City product Ed Reed recording an interception in the first half. For the ravens ravens quarterback Joseph Flacco with the game's MVP. Flacco was 42 of 33 on the night throwing for 287 yards and three touchdowns with no -- The game also attacked the championship and they wanted a career ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. Lewis spoke on the field after the final whistle. This is the second Super Bowl ring for Lewis who was also on the ravens squad that won Super Bowl 35 capping the 2000 season. Lewis played seventeen years and was the last remaining original raven when the team moved to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1986. Both festivities and events leading up to Super Bowl 47 were certainly a feather in the cap for the city of New Orleans. The big game didn't go off completely without a -- play had to be stopped shortly after the start of the second half one half of the superdome lost power. Partial blackout stopped play for 34 minutes officials of Entergy said the outage occurred -- -- equipment detected an abnormality in the system.

Absolutely you know look like the Baltimore Ravens runaway of that thing. Even into the beginning of the second half when Jacoby Jones to kick off back but then. I don't know if it was. The power outage Ottawa say it was a power outage because right after we got the power back on the niners came in it didn't really do much good. For whatever reason momentum kind of shifted the niners got back in the game in the ravens -- on the well. -- throughout postseason would be big holes and it again that at the end that was the way they played.

In the Mercedes-Benz superdome. But -- rose wasn't content to simply host a game a couple of native sons had big nights as well. Ravens safety Ed Reed came up big in the second quarter for the Baltimore. Closed down -- it gets up goes down the middle and a -- -- supported the importance. Does pack a five permanent deafness there dad we what is the the whole season in the senate seat. That post season interception nine for Ed -- highest. An all time record. And -- with a nearly -- avoid making history Jacoby Jones left his mark on the game as well. Akers kicked off to start the second hand feel by Jacoby Jones eight yards deep freeze it out the end zone look at mark 101527. -- the. It's. No good news. The really big good morning it's new -- go home -- -- one big joke nobody job. That's court tied a record as Jones ran a 108 yards to -- it was Jones the second score on the night. Ravens quarterback Joseph Flacco was named the game's MVP. Flacco threw for 287 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions connecting on 22 of -- 33 attempts. Flacco finishing entire post season and back without throwing a pick. After the game he talked about what makes the ravens offense that -- efficient. You can -- were coming together get a good offense our offensive line really played well our receivers just made some plays and Anquan -- -- -- Jacoby head Dixon today our backs on the battlefield you know when you come together like that you have confidence -- -- -- The game also served as a swan song for sure fire first ballot hall of Famer Ray Lewis. The seventeen year veteran spent his entire career Baltimore and as the last remaining original raven he was drafted in 1996. The year the team moved from Cleveland. Lewis is now a two time Super Bowl champion having won his first ring back in 2000 the twelve year gap between Super Bowls as the longest for any player in NFL history.
