Alright, so now that the important part is out of the way.... can we talk about the kidnapping of the Super Bowl halftime show?

It seems incredible, but when was the last time we had a SuperBowl show for people.... who actually like the Super Bowl? The Who all those years ago?

Don't get me wrong, I actually like Katy Perry.......but she doesn't fit the Super Bowl.... Neither does Rihanna's skanky ass.... or Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake?

Who the **** thought these were appropriate acts for a bunch of red-blooded football-lovin Men?

It's bullshit, this is our game.......not the Wife's, or the girlfriends. It's the Super Bowl!

They are trying to entice the younger fans to spend the money. They already know the old bags will still watch fooseball.

That half-time freakshow was an embarrassment. Riding some giant friggin mechanical whatever that was ...Singing beach balls and trees. This is modern day pop culture...totally depraved and lacking in depth... makes me think of the movie 'Idiocracy'..blah blah..rubble rubble..kids these days..:doh0715:

You got me interested. So I went straight to wiki and got a list of all of the SB halftime shows. Looks like the most traditional thing to do would be to have the #1 college band play the halftime show. And to be honest it also looks like having music that "football men" like has really never been a thing, so I would have to say that your original point is invalid.

You just realized that? Welcome to 2015 my friend, everything is ****ed.

They want that money to stay in their pockets, so they can buy fancy houses and other shit they don't need.

I don't even remember watching a half time show ever, but I do enjoy the commercials. Halftime is perfect to get some food going on because you can't leave the tv until then because the commercials are so good throughout the day. Sometimes the commercials keep the tv tuned in because the game sucks so bad, but that was not the case yesterday. Came down to one play, great game.

For me the Super Bowl was "I don't know" vs "I don't care" and the game was so-so at best. I waited for half time just case I wanted to see Ms Perry.... and left after that was over. Not even the commercials were good. Best part of that Sunday was the great food my momma made....and the progress I made in the garage for them.

This. The superbowl has really sucked in the last couple years IMHO.
I only watched it for commercials and half time but the commercials were mostly boring predictable shit and the halftime show looked like it was conceptualized by a bunch of children's cartoon designers on a bad acid trip.

I never watch the superbowl and I catch the commercials online the next day.

That way I already know which ones were good and which ones were crap.

It seems this year's commercials had lots of crap.

None of them really memorable.
