The Cold Filtered Ramblings of Gene Mueller

Deadspin gets to the bottom of another one: what was John Harbaugh yelling at that poor NFL suit?

  • Print


There were plenty of questions swirling around the Superdome right after the lights went out during Sunday night's Super Bowl.   

What happened?   Will the game resume?  When?   And, what was Ravens head coach John Harbaugh so p-o'd about when he was berating that guy wearing a suit on the sidelines before the resumption of play?

Deadspin ferreted out the answer.   Yep, the folks who brought you the Mantei T'ao non-existent-dead-girlfriend scandal hired a lip-reader to get to the bottom of the rant.   If you don't like profanity, don't click on the above link.

Conventional wisdom had it that the game might've resumed minus one team's ability to communicate with the coaches upstairs.  By rule, if one team can't, the other has to go without headsets, too.   Apparently, it wasn't an issue Sunday night once power came back, but it didn't keep Harbaugh from blowing his stack when it was a possibility.

Mystery solved.
