    Yes, it did. For that kind of money you`d figure that would never happen unless a tornado or hurricane was happening.

    I agree 100%. Believe me, the NFL has it`s system in place and little things they can do to detract fans from seeing how fixed the league is, they will use it.

    Remember this, the NFL hates the NY Jets. If it wasn`t for the Jets, the NFL would have never had to merge with the AFL. The NFL was losing so many players in the draft to the AFL and the NFL was a very boring game at that time(run, run, run, run, short pass, run, run, FG). The AFL was an up and coming league and very exciting. It was something new and the NFL hated it. The NFL hates the Jets. They will probably NEVER win another SB again unless the Jets, and whomever the owner is, pay off the NFL like Mara, Kraft, Steelers owner, Jerry Jones, Packers fans, etc.. do. Well, thats my conspiracy thoughts anyway. LOL

    Yes, and yet the dummies on CBS kept saying "the power's slowly coming back on," as if there was some giant light dimmer that was slooowly being turned

    Yeah, that's not even remotely true. The AFL/NFL decided to merge before Super Bowl 3.

    I don't know. But I know my home does and I'm happier than a pig in sh*t because of it.

    The first thing I did at my current home was buy a telephone pole and had the power lines run to the new telephone pole. I then rented an excavator and dug a trench from the pole to the house. I then put in conduit and ran cable and telephone (in case I want it later). The power company said THEY had to run the power lines themselves. I then back filled the trench. I also had a new breaker box put in my basement.

    I now have generator hook up.

    When the power goes out, the power instantly comes back on via my generator. It tests itself once a month. All I have to do is fill the propane.

    I NEVER lose my power. It's worth its weight in gold.

    GMC SUCKS. They took bail out money from the government. I will NEVER buy another GM or Chrysler vehicle so long as I live.

    Also, those generators performance wise. You get dirty power from them. You wouldn't want to hook up sensitive electronics to that generator.

    Honda is the best on the market. You pay WAY more than you do for a regular generator, but you pay for what you get.

    I was talking about GM taking bailout money, I wasn't speaking of the ongoing joke in this thread.

    I don't get how crazy everyone is getting about this power outage thing. This stuff happens sometimes. Most places have generators, but they're just to maintain a bare minimum of power. They just run s a few lights, maybe offices if there are any in the stadium, and anything that preserves food like freezers. The kind of generators needed to power an entire football stadium would be ridiculous in cost to run.

    well ofcourse they were planning it before the Jets won. Jets drafted Namath in 1965. The NFL was losing college prospects left and right. The Jets beating the Colts was the final nail basically because the Packers had won the 2 previous championship games so the NFL still had a hand up at that time. Then the Jets just slammed the nail in and football fans were already turning towards the AFL because it was more exciting to watch and they had some big names playing. So if you feel it ain`t "remotely true", feel that way. I see it differently.
