A brief history lesson in Wash. U. sports malfunctions

One of the most notable moments in last Sunday’s Super Bowl occurred just 1:32 into the third quarter, when half of the lights in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans went out. It took 34 minutes for the crews there to fix the problem and get the game going again.
