Darkside of the Super Bowl

Updated: February 4, 2013

NORTH CAROLINA (BASN)-After Beyonce’s smoking hot half-time performance, the Baltimore Ravens Jacoby James started the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVII by taking the kick-off 109 yards, which is a Super Bowl record, for a touchdown, where he celebrated by doing the Ray Lewis dance in the endzone.

And then, the lights went out.

The lights, in fact, stayed out for approximately 34 minutes and shifted the momentum of the game.

And, as darkness filled the Mercedes Benz Superdome, instantly people started offering explainations to what happened, how it happened, and why it happened.

Young conspiracy theorists, of course, simply blamed the evil Illumanti, whom they think control the world as well as Beyonce’.

As foolish as that may sound, old school gamblers and hustlers tried to convince others it was the work of the Mafia and the Las Vegas sports bookies, who felt the game was getting out of hand and needed to make sure the point spread was met.

Religious fanatics and spiritualists, however felt that the power of the Vodun,  an indigenous  organized religion from  West Africa and the spirit of Baron Samedi, who is the guardian of the grave, made his presence known in order to remind the NFL and the rest of the world that many of our African ancestors lost their lives in this same Superdome during Hurricane Katrina in 2005

Let’s not forget, Ray Lewis, who had been “crucified all week by the media” was possessed with the Ogun warrior spirit, and evoked the spirit of our ancestors by chanting the scripture from Isaiah 54:17, which states:No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment. You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. before the game and during the game.

That’s powerful, considering the horrible conditions our people faced and endured during that storm, despite the harsh criticism from the media.

Therefore, we shouldn’t be surprised that Beyonce’ performed the song Halo during half-time with these emotional  lyrics:

Everywhere I’m looking now

 I’m surrounded by your embrace

 Baby I can see your halo

You know you’re my saving grace
You’re everything I need and more

 It’s written all over your face

Baby I can feel your halo

Pray it won’t fade away
I can feel your halo halo halo

I can see your halo halo halo

 I can feel your halo halo halo

I can see your halo halo halo

While many may dismiss the power of the Vodun as well as my metaphysical breakdowns, several computer geeks suggested that the blackout was due to a handful of Silicone Valley hackers, who just hacked into the Superdome’s electrical system.

This isn’t hard to believe since 25000 Twitter accounts were hacked into Friday before the game along with several US media computer systems like the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Despite all of these explainations, the truth about this 34 minute blackout still has people trying to solve this mystery.

Therefore, I guess we all  have to way until next year to see what really happened in a new   Ocean Eleven movie, starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Don Chadelle, and Matt Damon.

But until then, I simply say Beyonce’, in the spirit of Yemanja,  was so good, she blew a damn fuse!!!

Oh, by the way, the Ravens withstood a second half comeback by the 49ers and won the game 34-31.
