Watch: The Transformer Blows And The Lights Go Out At Candlestick Park (Video)
If you haven’t already heard by now, there was a power outage during last night’s game at Candlestick park. And no, we are not referring to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ inept offense, which managed to record only 66 yards on the ground and a total of three points. Instead, what we are referring to is the blown transformer that caused the lights in and around the stadium to shut off for several minutes before the game, and once again early in the second quarter.
Thankfully, the game was able to resume on both occasions after power was restored through the use of an alternative power source. And with the lights shinning bright in Candlestick Park, the fans were able to get a good view of the 49ers defense, as they turned the lights out on Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense.
Here is the view from above the stadium just before the lights went out prior to the game. You can see the transformer blowing at the four second mark in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
