Howard County Executive Ken Ulman went down to New Orleans to watch the Baltimore Ravens play in the Super Bowl along with his brother Doug Ulman and his father Lou.
Ulman's brother Doug, the CEO of Livestrong, had acquired the tickets, according to Sam O'Neil, an Ulman administration official.
But when the lights went out just after the start of the third quarter, it was Ulman who was out in the dark—he was locked out of the building, according to an Explore Howard report.
Ulman told Explore Howard he had gone outside to call his wife, when the power went out, and the stadium went into lockdown.
"I turned around, the building was dark and they locked the doors," Ulman told the paper. "It was bizarre."
Once power was restored, Ulman was let back into the stadium, according to the article.
Later that night, Ulman also made an appearance on Channel 11 with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, both of whom were celebrating the Ravens victory on the streets of New Orleans.
