I don't think this was a pipe bomb -- the explosion was huge. Everyone jumped around us and first thing everyone thought was that it was a bomb but we couldn't get any info until the 4th quarter when people started calling people in the stands as it scrolled across the bottom of the screen.
There was pretty much of a news blackout until the game was almost over. You could barely get a cell phone call out as the circuits were all busy.
That's the first I've heard that this was a huge explosion.
Fortunately, people at the stadium kept their heads and didn't start a panic. Kudos to the the fans!
Thanks. New Media BUMP!
See #689 My source may have been corroborated.
Any big birds overhead with the sat dish on top? It seems that they are keeping the media from letting out any info....total blackout on all levels. Guess the Gooberment isn't ready to open up terrorist hunting season yet.
Have an "ear witness" Talking on another board. He says that it was a deep boom, too big for a pipe bomb. He says that he has experience with pipe bombs. Considering the board, I'll lean toward believing him.
