Steelers Vs. 49ers: Second Blackout At Candlestick Park Delays Play In Second Quarter, But James Harrison Entertains Us On Twitter

For the second time on Monday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers were delayed because of blackout at Candlestick Park. The game was delayed about 20 minutes before the lights came back on and play was resumed. While we waited, however, suspended linebacker James Harrison entertained us on twitter:

If I cant play then can't nobody play... Lights out!

With the lights back on, the Steelers re-took the field with possession of the ball but their drive stalled at midfield. During both delays tonight, much of the on-air speculation from the talking heads revolved around the "treatment" on Ben Roethlisberger's ankle wearing off during the delays. The delays certainly aren't helpful for the Steelers and Ben's sore ankle, as they are currently being shut out through nearly two quarters of play.
