Eh. She has some catchy, if somewhat disposable, pop tunes. Could be worse. I've only been inspired to watch three of the last ten halftime shows. This will make it three of eleven. I'm sure the wife and daughters will watch. I'll spend halftime in my private reading room.

Eh. I find myself caring less and less about the NFL these days. The domestic abuse scandal really cast the league in a poor light. Then the NFL wanted to charge the artists who were considered for the halftime show.

 

The only part of me that has any interest in the Super Bowl broadcast is the fact that I work in broadcasting, and it's the single most watched live event every year. So from a business standpoint I have some measure of interest. But that's really where it ends.

Does it really matter? Even on the occasion that there is someone I would like to see it's far from good. I don't necessarily blame the "artist" for that either, it's the situation. If I do watch the halftime show I am usually hoping for the most fabulous disaster that doesn't actually injure someone.

 

To be honest, I'd rather watch a 15 minute documentary on how all the people involved pulled off the show logistically. Setting up, tearing down and one of the most watched performances of the year in such a short amount of time is impressive on it's own.

If you think my playing is bad, you should hear me sing!

It screws up the players a bit too. They've played their whole lives with a 15 minute halftime, they have their routines, they're all warmed up. Now you ask them to pretty much sit there for an extra 15-20 minutes they don't like it. But alas, the Super Bowl isn't really about football and football players anymore, not to the league office at least.

Ouch. Hey, we were in the SB in '05. And the halftime entertainment in that game was provided by __________________?

I have pretty much quit watching football. I prefer hockey.

 

Football hasn't been about football for a long time. The NFL exists to facilitate fantasy leagues.

I love football. The NFL is filled with almost super human talent. I'm a fan. But like most others here, couldn't care less about this superbowl half-time. There will be no other games that day high lighted at half-time. No Strahan, Bradshaw, Long or Dungy.

 

There will be just another bubble gum pop machine pushing pop.

Sorry bro, couldn't resist. I live in Central Jersey and have a lot of friends who are Eagle fans. The chop busting just comes naturally. At least we're not fans of the God forsaken Cowboys.

 

So peace.

... and the Eagles were in Super Bowl XV in 1981 vs. the Raiders. I'll take crap from the Giants fans - they've won something in the last 10 years. Won't mention any names, but ...

 

- Last appearance in a Super Bowl? 1995

- Number of play off appearances since? Seven

- Number of play off wins? Two

- Fans immediately start counting rings in a conversation? - First

 

I'll let you guess on that.

Well, the Stones one year, the Chili Peppers another year, and Bruno Mars another year aren't bubble gum pop bands.

 

And Sting. Don't forget Sting. The Stingmeister rocked it.

 

 

I stopped watching football about a year or two before the concussion syndrome thing first hit the news after I attended a continuing education class on MRI's, brain trauma, and M.S. It was a "stunning" lecture; I remember it like it was yesterday.

Things are just the way they are, and they're only going to get worse.

The media like to make it that the BIG rivalries are Eagles-Giants and Cowboys-Redskins but the truth is fans in Washington, Philly and New York all hate the Cowboys more than each others' teams.
