Quick Hitter from a Suddenly Silent Cowboys Stadium

What happens when the most highly touted television in the world suddenly stops working?
100,621 people fall disquietingly silent, like primitives experiencing their first solar eclipse. Breathing becomes shallow. Nostrils dilate. A murmur develops.
There's a black hole in the collective consciousness.
People begin text messaging about exit strategies if the power fails. Flashbulbs fire like New Year's Eve.
Then someone repairs the problem and everything returns to normal.
Oh, and the Cowboys beat the Eagles to claim the NFC Eastern Division title.
The place is loud again, just like it should be.
