    I'd love it if we'd invest in our infrastructure. And not just electrical. We need to invest in it all the way around. Too bad we don't have the money to do so. Guess we could always borrow it from China. Oh wait...
    Then again, what's another couple of trillion dollars?

    Side note - imagine if we actually were able to pay China back all the money we owed them. They would be, not just a superpower, but a mega power.

    Anyway, I guess this thread is getting derailed into one that belongs in FS, so I'll stop here.

    Carry on..

    So according to the logic in the Forbes article, the 49ers shouldn't host a Monday Night Football game again until they move into their new digs in 2014?

    Granted, the Super Bowl and MNF are played on two entirely different stages, but both are NFL showcases. The power outage was an embarrassment, sure, but it was like the stumble drunk at any party. They cause a scene and make most people a little uncomfortable but once they pass out the party resumes and the next day it just makes for a good story.

    The Sd was just at 2/3 power. Faulty equipment, that's it.

    The blackout made the Superbowl interesting. Baltimore was starting to run away with it. The pause let SF catch their breath and we had an exciting finish. Well timed blackout.
