American Football

To be honest with you, I don't know enough about American football to save my life (I lost interest after Jim Kelly - my favorite NFL player - retired from the Bills).   But I do know about entertainment and the Superbowl championships always have some of the most entertaining half-time show performances (and commercials). 

Who can forget the 1993 half-time show featuring Michael Jackson?  It was Superbowl XXVII at the Rosebowl, Pasadena.  That was an amazing show, the only one where the TV ratings increased more than the Superbowl ratings.  It was also one of the most watched events in television history.  Michael Jackson had one of the most breath-taking, spectacular performances I've ever seen on TV.  

Another unforgettable show was the Motown tribute in 1998.  It was a celebration of 40 years in Motown history.  That was Superbowl XXXII at the Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.  The show featured magnificent performances by some of my favorite Motown artists - Boyz 2 Men, Smokey Robinson, Martha Reeves, The Temptations, and Queen Latifah!  Yeah, I may like rock music more, but I can sing along and get down with these Soul and R & B artists when I want to.  

My most favorite half-time show was - guess!  Yeah, the 2004 Rock the Vote half-time show.  I think I really made the time for it because MTV was plugging that show every second that they could.  Ads were all over the place - the Internet, magazines, radio, and TV, of course.  This took place at Superbowl XXXVIII at the Reliant Stadium in Houston.  And boy, was that show talked about for months after!  Why?  Because this was when Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" occurred.  Don't tell me you forgot!

I haven't had the opportunity to watch football in person but I've watched baseball and basketball games live. It's so different watching without hearing the commentators :)

Hi Liggy!

Micheal Jackson's performance was amazing, but his sister's wardrobe malfunction will be remembered forever.

Thanks for the Half-time flashbacks! I loved the different shows that have been put on and the Janet Jackson performance was amazing until I saw way too much - if you know what I mean LOL

Liggy, I should have known you;d go for the half time shows. As I recall, some of them have been horrid. In fact, in the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake year, Jessica Simpson was awful ... and booed by the crowd. I'm kind of old fashioned, I'd just as soon see marching bands (USC, for example).
