UPDATE (9:45 p.m. ET): Another power outage! The power's out again at Candlestick Park with San Francisco leading Pittsburgh 6-0. There's really no telling how long this will last, but hopefully it's no more than 20 minutes or so. Stick here for updates.

And the tweet of the year just rolled across from suspended Steelers linebacker James Harrison:

"If I cant play then can't nobody play... Lights out!"

------
Just when the world was ready for some football, a transformer near Candlestick Park exploded and shut the power down in San Francisco prior to the Monday night game against the Steelers and delaying the start time of the game.

As former 49er and broadcaster Steve Young noted, "it does feel very lonely" in the belly of Candlestick and the routine of both teams is now officially shook up.

There was no sense of panic and/or disruption with the fans when the power went out, which is good news. We'll update you here as we find out more about the timeframe for the game to begin, but it appears the game should be ready to roll soon.

The lights are back on at Candlestick and the players are on the field, but pregame introductions and the like still need to take place.

When the 9'rs move 40 miles away, are they going to be called the San Jose 49's? Their main offices are located there also.

"If I cant play then can't nobody play"

Maybe they should have checked Harrison for a concussion as well...
