Super Bowl with Super Surprises!


Both Ravens and 49er’s fans gathered in the Shack to watch the Superbowl on the main projection screens.  The event, put on by the Student Union Programming Board seemed like a foregone conclusion at the end of the first half, the Ravens dominating with a score of 21-6. Despite the 49er’s effort to fight back in the second half, they still fell short with a final score of 34-31.

Beyonce Knowles was slated to perform at halftime and she didn’t disappoint performing top hits like “Halo” and “Single Ladies”.   She surprised the audience by bringing back Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child to perform some of their signature songs as well.

The second half of the game was off to a slow start with a 34-minute power outage in the Superdome.  Some placed blame on Beyonce’s electrifying performance, but she had her own generator.    The source of the power outage still remains a mystery.  Once the play resumed, that was when the 49er’s attempted their comeback, and although they came close, an incomplete catch in the end zone marked the end of their journey, and a victory for the Ravens
