    Yea

    Yeah we do the fashion twice a year in NYC.. I've only done that job once, as they always pull me for the Super Bowl instead. That job is a nightmare. We have 40-50 semi trucks to load/unload in the streets between the hours of 2am and 4:30am. Makes for a small fiasco....

    That is totally bad ass to see come together. I love seeing behind the scenes stuff like that and appreciate all the infrastructure that comes together to make it happen!
    Thanks for sharing with us!

    Nope, they are having/had power issues. Half hour of play delay because of the issues.

    The stadium lost partial power for a half hour or so delaying the game . . . just resumed. Scotty, like myself, thought of Freaking right away.

    Haha. I haven't even remotely followed football in close to 15 years, I have no real interest in it. I'd probably find "Knitting tips with Martha" more interesting. :eek:

    Prolly would throw it on the TV for some noise, but renter is watching other stuff that is more interesting anyhow. Only have one tuner for the satellite.

    Based on post No. 14, it sounds like the grid power went out, not AggrekoStang. (Might've had some relation,,,IDK) viz:

    No, the Gensets are for three things.

    The live broadcast. They pay big money to ensure there is no drop in power for the live feed or the uplink. They can't rely on the grid, when an event of this magnitude comes to town.

    The 2nd "job" is supplying generator power to the half time show, mainly for the lights as the load most acts put on is more than your average stadium can handle.

    Third job is the venue/operations. Noel Lesely is contracted by the Nfl for the entire "game" it is months and thousands of man hours for this four hour game. There are a bunch of vendors that work of the stadium to get the show done, and we supply the whole vender/operations compound

    As stated, the load on the grid during an event of this magnitude is too much for most cities to handle, that's where we come in.

    That's what I was starting to think. seemed like the power issues were from the city's end of things.
