NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Mayor Mitch Landrieu says he doesn't think the 34-minute power failure during the Super Bowl will hurt New Orleans' chances of getting the NFL's championship game in 2018.
In an interview Monday with WWL-AM (www.wwl.com ), Landrieu said league owners were impressed with the city's performance as event host.
Officials for the company that manages the Superdome and power provider Entergy New Orleans said an ``abnormality'' occurred where stadium equipment intersects with an electric feed early in the third quarter of Sunday's game. Much of the stadium's interior lighting was shut down while the system recycled.
Landrieu joked that the game got better after the blackout. He said it was getting boring, and fans were leaving. ``We had to do a little something to spice it up,'' he said.
