The Eagles had long since hit the golf course, but the Philadelphia region was still represented in Super Bowl XLVII. Just not on the field.
West Conshohocken-based SMG Worldwide, which has managed the New Orleans Superdome since 1977, said today that a piece of equipment that monitors electrical load "sensed an abnormality" shortly after the second half of the game began on Sunday night.
Power to the stadium was "partially cut" by the automated system so that the problem could be isolated, the company said.
The company said it then worked with energy provider Entergy to "ensure that full power was safely restored."
"Entergy and SMG will continue to investigate the root cause of the abnormality," the company said.
The game, which was eventually won by the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 34-31, resumed after a delay of about 35 minutes.
