That’s the night that the lights went out at the ‘Stick
Our poor beleaguered Candlestick Park. The windy old jewel is really starting to show her age.
Well, not starting, really. Rapidly declining is more like it.
Last night she had a show to deliver: A contending team vs a contending team and an audience on the big stage of Monday Night Football.
Then this happened:
That blue light you see off to the left is a power transformer blowing up.
In a packed stadium in a hotly contested game with rafters full of fans from the opposing team out at Candlestick point…that’s not exactly where you want to be when the lights go out.
After some waiting around, the lights did come back on and the 49ers did prevail over the Pittsburgh Steelers, so all’s well that ends well, I suppose.
But what a sad state of affairs for the ‘Stick.
