CBS Host Says Singer 'Blew the Electric' Twice During Rehearsals
Big Hollywood ^ | 4 Feb 2013, 12:07 PM EDT

Posted on 02/04/2013 1:28:17 PM PST by drewh

Boomer Esiason, the former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback and co-host "The NFL Today" on CBS, said Beyonce's halftime performance may have been responsible for the 34-minute blackout during Sunday's Super Bowl between Baltimore and San Francisco.

“Beyonce blew the electric in the Superdome twice, I’m told, during her rehearsals during the week," Esiason said on Monday on his radio show.

Esiason recalled there was a buzzing sound in the Superdome shortly after Beyonce's halftime show.

On his "Boomer & Carton" radio show, Esiason said about "five or six minutes prior to" the "the breaker going," Kevin Harlan, a CBS announcer who was at the game, told him, "Man, do you hear that buzzing?"

"And I took my headset off and there was this like electrical buzz sound coming from the ceiling," Esiason said. "This was after halftime, it was after Beyonce."

The new “green” dome cannot handle the load it used to handle.

Beyonce blew a big fuse to help keep the Super Dome lights on. The Super Dome is getting old. Hope it does not lose power during the NCAA’s women’s final fours, my UConn women most likely will go to NO in early April.

Some sports commentators were observing how many 49ers games over the past few years seemed to be earmarked with power outages in the stadiums.

This one happened right after an unforeseen kickoff return seemed to take the steam of the 49ers,...until the 40-80 min break in the game.

But, but, but...those new LEDs on the outside of the stadium only consume a few kilowatts. And - as told us by the DOE - it’s now “green”. As such, the stadium - in theory - should be consuming less power than before ...right? (Yup, I know they’ve added lots of other power-consuming bells and whistles, which we all know means that the place now consumes MORE power than it did before the flood.) Oops, “we” means those of us who are actual science types...and “we” does NOT mean the dolts/idiots/felons/ and educators in the gubmit.

The Proverbs tell us, “Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.”

And she is not even beautiful.

I read that the stage show used an independent generator. Not city/public power. A buzzing sound would seem to me to most likely be a relay. I’ve heard a lot of electrical devices produce buzzing sounds, but relays are really loud.

agreed, she;s all hyped up about her being beautiful and her singing is tbe best either.

The super bowl is all about the sports and yet all the media ever talk about and most people is the half time show, who sang, what they wore and the AD’s/

I’ve given up on the super bowl anyway

Back in bout 1973, I was running the lights when Miss America came on stage. Up came all the lights including the supers, some floods added at the last minute the night before.

After about three minutes, everything went out. I didn’t even have a light to see the panel.

Some brave Jaycee went running to the locker room where the circuit breakers were. After about 10 minutes we were up and running but without the added floods.

Miss America was cool as a cucumber. He mike worked and she entertained in pitch dark

I am betting it was a heat overload switch...when she had all those pyrotechincs burning..it shot straight up to the roof....and I bet some circut shut down because of the heat....and it took awhile for them to cool down and restart...

Those of us in Atlanta were happy to see the 49ers die by the same “no call” to end the game . . . Karma sucks doesn’t it SF?

So how come nobody’s axing why the telebision transmission went on uninterrupted? Does everyone assume that it runs on solar power? Wind from the studio windbags? Algy?

Do we have to be told by the MSM what questions to ask? Spoonfed baby food? Seriously!

The Empire controlling brains in this country, MSM, has its own private power sources. Ain’t that scary?

Beyonde?

I seriously thought it was a transvestite. A half time show that no doubt went over well in America's prisons.

If Shepard Smith had read this report on TV, He’d have likely made yet another, “Sorry about that,” moment to be made famous on YouTube.

I would like someone, anyone — even a lowly sports writer - to say that the outage was inexcusable and that the USA looked like a Third World nation for the entire world to see.

Probably made BO happy.

I’ll be so glad when the Obama era is over and all these egotistic black entertainers-in the top 2%- by the way, stop getting this kind of attention. I’ll be glad to have a president that concentrates on the economy and our safety, rather than gay, gay, gay, whether boys should play football and gay boy scouts. So sick of him. Girls in combat and gay boy scouts. The USA is truly upside down under he and his perverted cohorts. The girls are tougher than the gay boys.

Didn’t watch, turned it off at half because of lack of interest in the show - heard it was typical performance, lots of skin and wiggle, not much voice. She was and is beautiful, but physical beauty doesn’t count for much when there is no morality behind it. She is basically selling her body for money, and yes there is a word to describe that act.

Ugh. Janet Jackson came on stage and that was years ago I said oh turn that s off. She’s a stripper nothing but.

We’re still subject to hearing how shocked everyone was.

She’s a stripper just like the one yeaterday.

Long before OB. He’s a symptom, no a parasite taking advantage of a sick society.

We are and our innocent kids are as well bombarded with deviant sex.

OB just moved in with his posse. There’ll be another to follow.

“the USA looked like a Third World nation for the entire world to see.”

Oh, yeah.

The entire world saw the stripper half time show. They don’t judge our culture and the morals of our women based on that.

NO! But the lights going out, right after the pornography, yes that rains judgement
