The power went out during the Cowboys-Giants game yesterday, and since it was a 4 o’clock game in November and it’s pitch-black outside by 5:00, that was a problem. And yes, since most of the east coast is afraid of the dark, there was a fight that we happily deliver to you after the jump. Of course, my power usually goes out during the late games and I wind up falling asleep on the couch, but to be fair, I’m not trying to power an entire stadium.
Though the first blackout at 6pm ET caused some players to hit the ground — well, you can’t be too careful with those late hits, especially if you literally can’t see them coming — several light banks did remain lit, which only resulted in a three minute delay of game. [..]
But eight minutes later, the whole stadium went dark with all the lights going out. This delay took 10 minutes before there were enough lights available to play the game (and 10 minutes later, all lights were back on.) –TIME.
Oh, by the way, new Cowboys coach Jason Garrett won his head coaching debut and snapped the Giants’ five-game win streak. But what I really want to know is why is that shirtless guy in the screencap so pale? I thought everyone in New Jersey had really deep, un-natural tans. And where is Snooki? There’s no way that she would miss such a big division game, right? Video via The Huddle.
