Super Bowl - Great game.... Lousy half time show.

Christina A gag U ???? Wouldn't you think anyone who was going to sing the National Anthem, at any event, but especially the Super Bowl, would take the time to memorize the words?

If I had paid several million dollars to advertise on that fiasco, I'd be seeking a refund.




Last night I watched the half time show

for the two thousand eleven SUPER BOWL

Not much about that type of music do I know,

but those BLACK EYED PEAS have got to go.


I’m not an expert,  I’m not even close,

but I’ve heard better music from my dogs throat.

When a big named band the likes of those,

is as awful at that, I become verbose.


I missed the golf match to watch that crap

and now you can’t get me to shut my trap.

If they worked for me, they’d each get a slap,

or I’d send them off someplace, without a map.


…..  I’m just sayin….




Maybe lip syncing these half time shows, ain’t that bad after all, but if that was lip synced, I’m even more shocked.  It was, by far, the worst half time show I’ve never watched, (actually I was only listening, cause I was on Author's Den) but like I said, I’m not a fan of that kind of music.  Just listening though, I couldn't believe that it was professionals.  The singing was just terrible.


I waited to post this because I wasn’t sure they were as bad as I thought they were, but when I read my two morning papers, they hardly received a mention.  And the brief mention that they got was not complimentary.  I just might be on the right track after all.....

I'm not a football fan, Richard, but I've heard more negative comments about the entertainment part of the super bowl than you can imagine....guess I didn't miss much! Good rant!

I usually like The Black Eyed Peas, but I dozed off during their Unsuper, Super Bowl Show. The game, however, was very good.

I gave up on half time show years ago. Pleasing the masses across this demography is hopeless. You should have watched the puppy bowl. Patrick

Have no interest in that kind of football - it was football, wasn't it? - and no knowledge whatsoever of the talent (or lack of) of the Black Eyed Peas, but i love your say it out and say it clear writing, Richard - fearless and real.

You are not alone. Is this what passes for music these days?

Oh well at least they weren't baring breasts, but if they had it might have been more interesting!!

I missed the whole thing so maybe that was a good thing.

"AWFUL" doesn't even come close to what they're performance was. And they actually got paid for that crap. LUDICROUS!
