Super Bowl Blackout

Each year, the Super Bowl is one of the most watched events on television. If you watched the big game last night, you undoubtedly noticed the power outage that delayed the game by about half an hour.

The blackout quickly became one of the number one trends on Twitter. Many of us in the CentriKid office jumped online to see what folks were saying about the power outage, and we quickly spotted tweets by several of our CentriKid staffers. We were reminded of a time when we had a power outage at camp. We shared a lot of laughs together, and we also laughed about some of the other funny comments we saw.

Check out some of the fun tweets that we spotted:

@CalebPMcDonald: “People freaking out about 20 minutes of no power? CK7 went a week with no power! Therefore, CentriKid is more hardcore than the Super Bowl.”

@ea_alexander92: “They should have sent the teams to bible study while they got the power back on. #CKsolutions #2012CK1”

@katiejallred: “That’s when you pull out the acoustic, candles, and kumbaya.”

@LauraReg1: “Everything goes smoothly and then the power goes out. You said it…. #CampDirectorProblems”

@lemcmillan: “This blackout would be my worst nightmare!!!! #CampDirectorProblems #PLNightmares!

@akward0223: “The power is dead, but Jesus is alive!!! #ck7blackout”

Among all the laughs we shared last night, I was reminded that even when things go wrong, God has a plan, and we have the opportunity to respond positively or negatively. The next time the lights go out on your event, share a few laughs, then jump back on track.
