Packers. Saints. It wasn’t on. Literally.
Why? Because of an “unprecedented outage” in San Diego County that “left millions in the dark,” including me.
The power went out around 3:38 p.m. The game was on at 5:30. Normally a power outage isn’t a big deal to me. It’s fun. But when 5:30 rolled around, then 6, 6:15, I knew I was screwed. I have a strong feeling that a Bears fan is behind all of this.
Wife: “Eric, it’s just a game.” Chicks.
I said in my last post that my family was “still in this together.” Thanks to my old man, I was able to “watch” the game on the phone, as he provided the play by play. I have to say he could use a little improvement as a sportscaster, but he did OK.
Moments after I built a campfire in the yard, the power came back on to hoots and hollers throughout the neighborhood. Powergeddon 2011 was over. And so was the game.
