Super Bowl Show Review
I paused the Super Bowl during the first half since it was just my wife and I watching and preparing dinner. I figured this would be a blessing later during what I knew the half time show consisted of: Black Eyed Peas. I fast forwarded through their off key, atrocious… I won’t call it music… whatever that woman caterwauling on the stage was howling with her caustic comrades and army of dancing lighted Gumbies. The game did not disappoint. The commercials were uninspired and many like the Doritos one with the guy licking fingers and pants were… disturbing. That half time show in my humble, out of touch, sixty year old head was bad beyond the concept of bad. That there are people buying Black Eyed Peas albums answered many questions in my mind as to the inexplicable things happening around me. It also defined a new horror of hell – me, straight jacket, strapped onto a gurney, headphones, Black Eyed Peas blaring in my ears for eternity. I’m going to church next Sunday. Christina Aguilera – not knowing the words to the National Anthem – FAIL!
I know the Super Bowl is a football game, my friends; but how tough would it be to find a singer who knows the words to the National Anthem and… and anything other than a half time show of Black Eyed Peas… even somebody playing Yankee Doodle Dandy on a Kazoo would have been an improvement. :)
