A power outage at the Super Bowl put the nation’s biggest sporting event on hold for more than a half-hour Sunday, interrupting an otherwise electric, back-and-forth game that ended with Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens as NFL champions thanks to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, according to Fox News. Flacco was voted the MVP of the game. It’s been one impressive game after another for a guy who never has commanded the widespread respect usually accorded a top player – but now will head into an offseason that could land him a USD20 million-per-year contract in free agency. To get to the Super Bowl, Flacco already led the Ravens past Denver’s Peyton Manning and New England’s Tom Brady for two of his league-record six career postseason road victories by a quarterback. Before the game began, with 100 million or so Americans expected to tune in on TV, a chorus of 26 children from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. – where 20 students and six adults were killed in a shooting rampage in December – sang “America the Beautiful,” accompanied by “American Idol” alum Jennifer Hudson.
