Watched the Superbowl the other day. The whole thing - from start to finish. This was the first time I'd had the opportunity to do so and I was determined not to miss it.
What did I think? Well, it was a spectacle, for sure. No-one puts on a show like the Yanks. To be honest, I missed a lot of the football getting up to try to find something to do, like make drinks (it was scorching hot) and have a pee ... wash the dishes, hang out the wet clohes ... the awkward Australian-broadcast commentators didn't help but stuffing up their feed intros and out-tros.
But it's obvious to see why the event has the reputation it has - it's huge. The contest was fierce (even I got that part) and the skill levels high.
The best part, though, was not even American! It was Sir Paul McCartney. Still rockin' after all these years. Janet & Justin had to get some clothes off to entertain as much. It's easy to forget just how great some of those songs are and how timeless rockin' really is.
Gives us old farts hope that we might get to rock out like that one day ... :-)Posted by Hughie at February 8, 2005 5:37 PM
