Ok, so maybe the title is a bit inaccurate, the whole stadium wasn’t blacked out.
However, you might notice that really big, blank screen in the middle of the picture. That’s the Yankees enormous (in both size and cost) HD display, which just so happened to go blank during the game I went to with Rich last week.
Moments after it went off, all around the stadium you could see smaller monitors turning off and on again; they were resetting the entire stadium in an effort to get the big screen operational.
Back when I was working in a multimedia theater one of my supervisors had a saying, “Working in IT is hours of boredom and moments of sheer terror.”
I bet I know what kind of moment the stadium tech guys were having.
