    Default San Diego fireworks go up all at once

    ooops....

    Those watching the Big Bay Boom in San Diego's Glorietta Bay witnessed what was either an accidental fireworks display -- or a very disappointing fireworks show.

    Port District authorities said a "technical difficulty" resulted in all the fireworks going off at once.

    About 5 minutes before the show was supposed to start, a sudden burst of fireworks shot into the air near the bay. Throughout downtown San Diego, a large rumble could be felt just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday night.

    It appeared that hundreds of fireworks were set off at the same time. The explosions lasted a few seconds.

    At about 9:20 p.m., people waiting for the display were told to return home. The fireworks show was canceled, a radio announcement said.

    The Port hires the company Garden State Fireworks to operate the fireworks show. Calls to the company were not immediately returned.

    No injuries were reported.

    Actually, that blows is probably more appropriate.

    I always wondered what it would look like if that happened. Well...now I know.

    While it certainly isn't as fun as seeing an entire show, there is something to be said for the "I was theeere, maaan" angle to this.

    That show will be San Diego legend.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Stay classy San Diego.
