This just in. On Wednesday, January 24, 2001, major power companies made a public statement, informing people that watching the Super Bowl alone could cause a complete power outage that could possibly last a few hours.

The Super Bowl is the most watched TV event each year. If the astounding number of people who tuned in last year tune in again this year, all the TV's will suck away the last of California's power.

So they're telling the public to plan parties and watch the Super Bowl this year in groups to prevent serious outages.

The power company and football. Bringing people together... or else.
