Officials are investigating what caused the power outage during the Super Bowl. In what should have been a clue that something was wrong, the lights in the Superdome blew out twice during Beyonce’s halftime show rehearsals. 

- I guess she figured it’s harder to tell if you’re lip-syncing if the whole stadium is dark. 

- The reason the lights were out for 34 minutes was it took time to call the guy in India who told them how to fix it.

Mike Tyson said that Lance Armstrong is “an awesome human being”. 

- Well if that endoresement doesn’t get his Tour de France medals reinstated I don’t know what will! 

- Boy that Tyson can really chew your ear off…literally.


On this day in 1901 the Loop-the-Loop centrifugal roller coaster was patented by Ed Prescot.
