being check their phones, go to the bath rome being check more food. if they came back, it was a close game. that is what might have cbs breathing a sigh of relief. maybe some advertisers won't be demanding any money back but other advertisers were really clever. they understand that so many people watch the game and have a second screen experience on their mobile phones so they turned to twitter and made the best out of t tide wrote he we can't get your hash tag blackout but we can get your stains out. and oreo said you can dunk in the dark on twitter. so many advertisers realizing that you have that interaction with the game also on your phone and they tried to make the best out of it. >> all right. they did but i'm sure someone is going to be asking some questions this morning. >> i know. i know. >> when beyonce was done, i thought her performance was just so good. i didn't like the last couple of super bowl half time shows. so i was like this is too good to be true. it seems like too smooth. and then all of a sudden, the
6:28 am
blackout happened. >> and then the lights went out. good to see you. we'll see you tomorrow. >> you too. >> coming up next, a look at how the ravens fans are celebrating the day after. we'll check in with dave ross a little bit later. we'll be back.

6:35 am
what a first half he had. three touchdown passes en route to being the game's most valuable player. how about this? 11 touchdowns, zero interceptions in the playoffs. that is pretty darn heady stuff right there. a crazy thing where the lights went out for about 35 minutes to begin the second half. ravens firmly in command at that point and the nines are seems to get energized and it all came down to a goal line stand. the ravens defense would step up and be counted for when it needed to be most. colin kaepernick, a blitz and the pass is incomplete and the ravens get their second world championship. >> he played 20 games this year and i think i've thrown 10 picks. it just thaps that way. the team came together and got healthy and we hit our stride right at the right point and
