    100 million people are all watching some lights slowly turn on and sports commentators give us the play by play #onlyinamerica #superbowl47Anthony Avino
    As the Blackout dragged on, the jokes just kept coming.
    Chill guys. George W Bush will be here to fix the lights in a week and a half. . #superbowl47”Will Ferrell
    Resuming play — thank goodness. It was getting awkward listening to these commentators try to fill 34 minutes. #gaybowlXLVII #superbowl47The Advocate
    After over a half-hour the game final resumed and the 49ers offense made some serious gains.
    If the 49ers come back and win this thing we call it the #BlackOutBowl and Disney makes a movie about it. Come on 49ers!!Philip DeFranco
