“The New Meadowlands Stadium experienced two power outages in the 3rd quarter of tonight’s game,” a statement issued by stadium said. “Power was lost when one of the two feeders to the stadium experienced a power interruption.”
The stadium then started taking power from the second feeder, the statement said.
“A second power interruption occurred to the second feeder causing a full outage,” the statement said. “Functionality to the original feeder was restored and we are now receiving power though that feeder.”
“We are currently investigating the original cause of the interruption,” the statement said.

So let me get this straight, the NEW Meadowloands Stadium, you know the 1.6 Billion one, lost power during the Cowboys Giants game? Maybe I’m missing something here, but don’t multi-billion dollar stadiums have, I don’t know, backup power
? Like this article says that one generator shit the bed, then a minute later the whole stadium is pitch black. Fans were going crazy getting in fights with each other, and the players hit the deck like it was a terrorist attack or something. I guess turning the lights off is the new international signal for start a riot. Grow up America.
I wonder how many hot girls were groped by creepy old men and 8-year-old boys during the blackout. I think I’m guna look for some statistics on that.
