The NFL continues the "I was big when your parents were little" tour. Maybe this will be better than last year's wheeling out of the not-technically dead yet members of the Rolling Stones to lipsync songs from the 60s.
A few years ago, the Patriots decided against the individual introductions
"at quarterback, number 16...."
They said it was for team unity...whatever, now every team has to do it, or they look like egomaniacs. Result: that cut down on the time you had to wait watching linebackers and tight ends get introduced.
Some network just needs to do the same thing with the half-time show. Put extra money into something better for the "football experience" and end the half-time concerts. There are a dozen quality concerts on each week, better than the halftime show. If it work, every network would have to do it.
Maybe more quality audio mics down on the field, so they can put together a good 1st half highlight reel with audio. Not like when they mic a guy during the game and then he never says anything because he knows he's mic'd.
I notice that the little purple guy is booked on a long term basis at the Rio Hotel and casino in Las Vegas now. He plays Friday and Saturday nights and has "friends" play a couple other nights a week.
This was prior to the halftime show, but all I have to say is... "Thanks CBS, for screwing up and dropping the audio for about 10 minutes on your HD broadcast". Viewers were thus left with the choice of either switching to the SD version of the broadcast, or watching in silence.
