Another Super Bowl in the can, and the official results are in. Beyoncé was hot, the commercials, not (with the exception of Chryslers odes to our military and farmers, butt they werent technically commercials). There was a delay of game penalty called due to a temporary brown-out in the Chocolate City. And, oh yes the Ravens won!
So from the top: did you see Beyoncé shaking her considerable Behindce all over the half-time show?
Beyoncé the Super Knowles
No wonder she didnt have time to practice for the inauguration and had to lipsync! Last nights performance was not just live, butt live in hot black leather and lace! With matching hot black knee-high sock-boots. Lady M was mesmerized:
(snip)Big Guy tweeted too: an official game day picture of his own hot self.
Butt back to Beyoncé; not only did she shake it all over the place, she reunited with her former Destinys Child partners.
Beyoncé reunites Destiny
While the Destiny chicks are hot too, I think you can see in this butt-to-butt playoff why in the Age of JLo - Bey was the break-out star in that group.
Beys booty left the stage after its electrifying performance,
play got back underway, and out of nowhere ZAP! A power surge! And just like that, half the lights went out in the Super Dome. It was like Hurricane Katrina all over again: a bunch of antsy people crammed into the Super Dome and no power. Only who do we blame this time? George W. Bush? Dick Cheney? Mayor Ray the levees aint holdin Nagin? Destiny?
The official explanation is as follows:
(snip)To make this the greenest Super Bowl, the New Orleans Host Committee has partnered with fans and the community to offset energy use across the major Super Bowl venues.
To wit: load management. Unfortunately one of their eco-friendly load managing sensors malfunctioned (as green energy things often do) and the next thing you know:
Half of the Super Dome went black. Is that racist? No. As I just explained, it was green.
Ive tried to warn Big Guy about this before: green energy isnt ready for prime time. Solar cells, windmills and battery powered electric cars all have a history of blowing up in your face.
And now this Super Bowl fiasco. Of course, theres a chance Im wrong and the blackout had nothing to do with New Orleans green energy policy. Maybe it was simply the result of bad business practices. The type of practices that result in the shoddy products and workmanship you get when you use kickbacks, graft and corruption to determine who is awarded city contracts. You know, the kind of practices that resulted in the indictment of former Mayor Ray Nagin on 21 charges of corruption including wire fraud, bribery and money laundering?
Sheeze, bribes and kickbacks in exchange for city contracts? No wonder it took the Crescent City so long to get back on its feet after Dick Cheney blew up the levees.

As a 49ers fan, I have no doubt the blackout was God’s mercy on display.
Hold a Super bowl in a slum. Get what you get.
Only reason I wanted Ravens over 49ers is Pelosi is from SF and I wanted her to be sad.
Ditto. And I wanted the people that voted her in to be crushed. Go RAVENS!!
Don’t forget SF is fag city. On the other hand, I don’t like a gun-happy thug in Lewis winning either. Good game though.
But San Fran Nan was born and raised in B’more. Her dad was also the Mayor of B’more.
Technically, Pelosi is from Baltimore.
When the Local IBEW union hall found out there were non union electricians in use so the halftime show would take a half hour instead of three days, they had to take action..........
That’s a crap headline and should be removed
He'll be inside prison within 18 months, doing seven to ten.
Thats a crap headline and should be removed
That's what Ray Nagin (under indictment) mayor named NO. Maybe you should speak to him and his city council about it?
Were you alive in 2005? The Mayor of “Nawlins” gave it that name. Live with it.
You must be a racist to tell a black man, Mayor Nagin, that he cannot call it the “Chocolate City”.
For what it’s worth......
Mayor Nagin at a Martin Luther King Day celebration at City Hall New Orleans on January 16, 2006, gave a speech.
Shortly after, Nagin continued, “We as black people, it’s time, it’s time for us to come together. It’s time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. And I don’t care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day.”
With a Super Bowl ring after beating the crap out of the “Fancy 49rs”.
Pssst ... crap is chocolate brown.
It was just Beyonce shaking her big bootie. The gas that came out out caused the blackout.
Isn’t it racist to call it a blackout?
