New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu speaks during a news conference at City Hall in New Orleans, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. Landrieu said that the outage won't hurt the city's chances of hosting another Super Bowl and he joked that the game got better after the blackout. "That 34 minutes is not going to cast a shadow over the accomplishments of the city," Landrieu said, calling the event "as near-perfect a Super Bowl as the country has ever seen." He added that officials estimate the game brought $432 million into the city. (AP Photo/Jonathan Bachman)
