This morning on the radio all they talked about was the half-time show. Apparently what we thought was Janet Jackson's boob with a pastie was actually her naked nipple with a "shield" piercing (it's a decorative ring that surrounds the nipple held in place by a bar through the middle).
I say who cares, as the entire half-time show was about as lame as could be, and a disgrace to MTV which had put together some nice shows in years past. Janet: We can tell you're lip-syncing and it's weak. You're better than that.
Nelly sucks. P Diddy is worse. He's an arrogant megalomaniac who has no musical skill of his own. How many 80's songs is he going to do a rap vocal over? Lame lame lame. Rap has become so lame with so many me-too artists. The only folks worth mentioning at the moment are Outkast and Missy. If Eminem and the Beasties could get something out again that would help.
Kid Rock wasn't horrible I guess. Apparently he's taking crap for wearing a flag as a poncho. That guy is so patriotic it borders on being cliche, and people accuse him of being disrespectful? The guy has been in the Middle East more than anyone in Washington for God's sake. Of course, I'll never understand why people get so fired up about flag burning or whatever. I personally think we should celebrate the irony that the very freedom the flag represents allows us to burn it. I mean, isn't that what this country is about, or do we make exceptions for anything that doesn't fall within our personal beliefs? Shit, we tore Afghanistan a new asshole for doing just like that.
The only non-game highlights were Aerosmith's pre-show performance. It's about fucking time they did something other than that lame-ass song from that movie a couple of years ago. Dream On was very appropriate, and they perform it better than ever.
I also liked the Bud spot with the Donkey. That was fun.
Still, for a change, a game that was actually interesting. Congrats to the Patriots.
