2013 Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco talks about power outage to David Letterman

By Gavriella Tjandra,

After a short vacation to Disney World to celebrate the Ravens' big win, Joe Flacco appeared on the Late Show on Monday to talk about the Super Bowl - the power outage, to be exact.

When asked what he thought about it by David Letterman, he admitted that it was a little strange and funny, E! News reported.

"Some of our guys had a good time with it. Jacoby [Jones] is from New Orleans, so he started to look into the crowd and get them all going and had a lot of fun with it," adding, "We didn't play too well afterwards, but I don't know if that was the reason."

Letterman asked him whether it was the work of 49ers' coach Jim Harbaugh (brother of Ravens' John Harbaugh).

"Hey, being an older brother and having a lot of younger ones, that's definitely something they would do," Flacco answered humorously.

The cause of the 34-minute power outage in the Super Bowl is currently still under investigation, ESPN reported.

The Superdome officials, on the other hand, were worried about a power outage several months before the game started.

According to a note released on October 15 last year, Louisiana Stadium & Exposition District, which takes care of the Superdome, said the stadium's electrical feeder showed "some decay and chance of failure."
