Wondering if it's taboo, like playing "Stairway to Heaven" at the guitar store laugh

So, who's it gonna be?

I'm a Saints fan, predicting Niners.

I have to go with the Niners and SF winning both the series and the superbowl in the same year! It would be very cool! I hope it's going to be a great game and I won't mind a bit if the Ravens win it. Both brothers are great coaches but the real talent is with all of the players! cool

Ultimately, a pretty good game- congrats to the Ravens and their fans!

I know it's late, but I haven't been here in about a week. I picked the Ravens to win, and it was really a fairly easy call to make. If the Patriots beat the Ravens in the AFC Chamionship game two weeks earlier, the Patriots would have been a huge favorite. Therefore, it only makes sense that the team that beat the obvious favorite should be the new favorite.

Played a noon to 4 gig on Superbowl Sunday. Between songs Dave, my front man yells - everyone for the Ravens - lets' hear it! half a dozen people (out of 500-600) gave small cheers.
Dave then said how bout them 49er's - same thing - very lame couple of shouts.
This was surprising to me - I yelled out - who doesn't give a shit?
The whole place exploded in cheers. I guess San Fran & Boston are just too far away to have much of a fan base here. confused

Only watched the first half as I wasn't feeling too good. Beyonce was really a bunch o' nothing, I guess I just don't get pop music - it was a dance routine more than anything. Let's go back to marching bands shall we?

Given the context, we shouldn't really be expecting music in the first place. It's about entertainment, & what entertains the masses isn't usually going to please music aficionados.
Marching bands are so deeply tied to the conventions & orthodoxies of a bygone era that they have surpassed being merely a nod to nostalgia & are now thoroughly fossilized in amber. I might could be entertained by an actual Apollo moon launch, followed by a recreation of the Battle of Culloden, with lots of bagpipes, & maybe Hawaiian hula dancers with ukuleles.

How about a monster truck mud pit with heavy metal guitars playing while the cheerleaders do some mud wrestling? The winning surviving chicks with the most clothes left on get 3 points added to the half-time score...

I guess I would score that a little differently, like points deducted for most clothes remaining.

I could force myself to sit through a football game if they had these guys do the halftime show:

if it's 0 to 0 you would have a minus score? either way you score it somebody [pun intended] is going to have a wardrobe malfunction...
