On the game... I really don't give a rat's ass (apparently many other Americans don't either), but will root for the Cardinals because they are seen by most as underdogs. Plus, with Rush Limbaugh being a Steeler fan, that brand is crap.
I am a huge Springsteen fan and have been wondering (along with millions of others) how he'll cram the energy of a 3+ hour concert into 12 minutes. If anybody can do it, the Boss and the E Street Band can. So, what's on the playlist? Gotta think he does Born to Run. Maybe Working on a Dream. He's been recruited for years and finally agreed to the Super Bowl in '09. I think it is his optimism for the U.S.A. with an Obama Administration. Born in the U.S.A. on the playlist? BTW, his new album, CD... whatever... "Working On A Dream" is f%$#ing great! Been renaissance of sorts... "The Rising," "Magic," and "Working On A Dream" all speak to the soul of our nation and are performed with precision and unbelievable vitality.
The commercials will be fun, but again they are a flash in the pan. Hope they provide a little economic stimulus for the short term. Guess they did for NBC.
May the best team win. I'll have some popcorn. Pizza. Gimmie another beer. Now kick it off, already!
