Ted Ginn Jr. wants you to know something: Beyonce is one of the reasons he still doesn’t have a Super Bowl ring. And he hasn’t forgotten it.
Speaking to Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe on “The Lefkoe Show,” Ginn was quick to point out why Queen Bey was the culprit behind the 49ers’ Super Bowl 47 loss to the Ravens on Feb. 3, 2013.
“I don’t think everyone remembers you were on that 2011 49ers team, which is one of the most talented teams ever,” Lefkoe said. “And then Beyonce knocks the power out, the Ravens beat you in the Super Bowl. If that power outage doesn’t happen, Ted Ginn …”
“We’d have won that,” Ginn said.
“We gave them time to re-warm up, get back right,” he said. “We were over there like, ‘Hurry up and get the power back on, man. We ready to go!'”
Early in the third quarter, the lights abruptly went off in the Superdome in New Orleans. Before a 34-minute stoppage, Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones ran back the second-half opening kickoff for a touchdown, giving his team a 28-6 lead.
The 49ers weren’t as close as Ginn made it seem initially. They did, however, score 17 straight points to claw their way back into the game, 28-23, before eventually losing 34-31.
Many have speculated that Beyonce’s performance was the reason for the nearly 35-minute blackout, but it later was reported “human error” led to the debacle and a power surge was to blame.
