12 Weirdest Stadium Malfunctions

If you happened to be watching the Monday Night Football game between the 49ers and Steelers the other day, then you were treated to a bizarre spectacle. Early in the second quarter, with the home team up 6-0, all the lights went out at Candlestick Park.

Personally, after the brawls that occurred at Candlestick during the preseason, suddenly being plunged into darkness there would have made me a little uneasy. But the lights went back on after 16 minutes and everything was okay.

Of course, this was hardly the first time a stadium malfunction has delayed or impacted a major sporting event. So today, Total Pro Sports brings you a list of 12 other weird stadium malfunctions. In time, we’ll have a better idea of where the 2011 MNF power outage might rank on this list.
