Retired Baltimore Ravens player Ray Lewis reveals a Super Bowl blackout conspiracy in his latest interview, which is due to air Monday night, Sept.2 on the NFL Network. Lewis believes the blackout that occurred during Super Bowl XLVII was no accident, it was done because the Ravens were winning, spews Lewis.
Yahoo Sports on Sept. 1, suggests that this claim is even more bizarre than the jokers who claimed Beyonce's hot performance blew the fuse! During an interview for NFL Films “Amerca's Game” series that is airing a segment on the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl victory Monday night, Lewis blamed the Ravens 28-6 lead in the third quarter as the reason the lights went out in the stadium that night.
Lewis said he understood that the lights went out at home when times get tough, but times don't get tough for a stadium unless someone is winning that you don't want to win. Part of Lewis' reveal went like this:
"I'm not gonna accuse nobody of nothing - because I don't know facts," Lewis said according to USA Today's Nate Davis. "But you're a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. (Laughs) No way.
"Now listen, if you grew up like I grew up - and you grew up in a household like I grew up - then sometimes your lights might go out, because times get hard. I understand that. But you cannot tell me somebody wasn't sitting there and when they say, 'The Ravens (are) about to blow them out. Man, we better do something.' ... That's a huge shift in any game, in all seriousness. And as you see how huge it was because it let them right back in the game."
When Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a reveal of his own recently, people might have been a bit confused about what he meant. Flacco said that he did not understand 90 percent of the speeches spewed by former teammate Ray Lewis. After hearing Lewis' take on the night the lights went out at the stadium, it's no longer hard to understand Flacco's confession about following Lewis' train of thought.
