Lights Out: Joe Flacco Talks About the Super Bowl Outage (VIDEO)
The Baltimore Ravens QB dishes on the big game during a visit to 'Letterman.'
How does a quarterback handle an electricity shortage during the biggest game of his life?
Continuing his victory tour after a trip to Disney World, Joe Flacco's latest stop included a visit to the Late Show with David Letterman, where he talked about all things Super Bowl — including Sunday night's puzzling power outage.
"I just thought it was a little strange," the Baltimore Ravens QB told David Letterman on Monday night. "It was kind of funny. I mean, some of our guys had a good time with it. Jacoby [Jones] is from New Orleans, so he started to look into the crowd and get them all going and had a lot of fun with it. We didn't play too well afterwards, but…I don't know if that was the reason."
When it came to a possible culprit for the shocking moment, could the San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh (brother of the Ravens' HC, John Harbaugh) have played a part in the outage when his team was down 22 points?, Letterman jokingly asked.
"Hey, being an older brother and having a lot of younger ones, that's definitely something they would do," Flacco quipped.
Along with leading his team to a 34-31 victory, Flacco was named the game's Most Valuable Player and revealed another winning moment in his life. During a post-game party, the NFL superstar announced he and his wife are expecting their second child to their closest friends and family.
"Yeah, we had a little tradition going on," he said. "Last year, we announced we were having a son after the 49ers game on Thanksgiving. This year, my wife found out she was pregnant a couple weeks ago and we just told everybody after the San Francisco game."
