superbowl

Holy crap did anyone watch the halftime show. I regret to inform you I wasted 15 minuits of my life. Who comes up with this?????
Prince singing Foo Fighters??? Why is it they have to have someone who hasn't made a song in 20 years, on the stage. Don't give me that crap that there isn't any good bands out their now. Four words. Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I actually listened to the game on the radio to stay away from the stupid commercials and "the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as..."

I love the commercials. This year's set of advertisements were not even a little funny for the most part. Oh, and the game was a joke.

I just can't believe it. Maybe no respected music group will risk there dignity and respect to be grouped in with other half time show artists (and i'm using that word loosly). Thats why they have The artist formerly known as, preforming a Foo Fighters song instead of the actual band. CBS screwed up on so many accounts. They obviously were charging far to much for a commercial spot, because all the adds were for CBS programing.


I did like the Coke adds. And most of the GM adds.

I'm not a big Prince fan but I thought it was a decent halftime show. He covered a verse or two of Hendrix's Watchtower too, which I thought was pretty neat.

They could not have come up with a worse set of events. The whole thing just blows my mind. The horrible "musician", the paid "fans", the aweful "dancers", the marching bands just dancing around. Can't America do better??

If it was the Red Hot Chili Peppers someone would have probably posted in the same context as you did. I guess that no matter who would have performed during half time, not everyone would have been pleased. I think Prince is a great performer but I didn't want to see him at half time either. That's why I took a shower instead. But to call Prince a horrible musician is really a joke. Yeah you can question his singing. But to question his talents as a musician is another thing. He didn't have the fans screaming, dancing and singing during his performance for nothing. JMHO!!

But did ya'll see his last song with the purple guitar playing in front of the back drop? When he was plating sideways? and looked like a big shlong was coming out of his pants?

At the party I was at, we all laughed ours arse's off, Kind of a Janet and Justin take on things. Pretty funny...

And the "All Along The Watch Tower" attempt, that was just wrong. Jimmy must have been roling in his grave.

The only thing I care about is the football game itself. The commercials and halftime show -- that's all a bunch of BS. Amazing how the interests of dedicated football fans comes last during the biggest game of the year.

I guess I would never consider myself a football fan.
