Could be working on the lines or someone knocking out sub stations stealing cable. Alternatively it could just be the fact that when Maggie privatised power generation the companies failed to invest adequately in new power stations and our ability to cope with occasional spike in demand has suffered. We had a brown out at work (Runcorn) yesterday which sent a few bits of kit a bit funny.

A brown out :shock:

Warrington led 16-2 in Saturday's Grand Final, but their joy was short-lived as Wigan roared back to win the Super League title and extend the Wire's 58-year wait to be champions

Brief interruption of less than a second that causes the lights to momentarily dip in brightness also trips some of our more sensitive electronic kit.
Good Luck Wigan Athletic

From Wigan Warriors.

Good to see and despite which sport you follow the town is very lucky to have the choice of both football and rugby at the highest level in this country.

Don't follow football but it would be incredible for Wigan if both teams reached Wembley and won.

Meh.
'Do you remember when we had that meeting in Orlando? We talked about how we were knocked out the previous year by Leeds. And at the end, I asked you one question. "Do you want to be a semi-final team? Or do you want to do something special?" You all said you wanted to win. But talking is easy – it needed you to believe. It needed you to work hard – harder than you had – and make sacrifices. You did all that. you worked for each other. You stuck together when it was tough. And because of your efforts, you sit here tonight as champions. I'm proud of you. Be proud of yourselves. You've done something special.'

Considering it involves both teams in the same town I think not.

I found it quite interesting that Wigan Warriors exchange coaching methods with the football team.

Mark Bitcon was a Wigan Athletic Jnr and is still one the the best footballers I have played with - we can learn a lot from other sports.
