The Spin I’m In: Are You Ready For Some Halftime?

Sports and rock don't mix, especially when the Super Bowl stages a fake concert. But don't get me wrong, the Super Bowl halftime trainwreck is my favorite thing about the Super Bowl. Now I know that this year's halftime performer Prince is going to be good. Prince is always good. The cat just smokes. And even though I know that I'll enjoy his performance, I also know that the organizers will coat the event with a layer of cheese, I just don't know how thick it will be. That's the fun part.

First off, the people that are hired to be "fans" and froth over the performer on the field always look like a college pep squad who have never been to a concert.  They look and smile at the camera more than the performer. And even when there's a good performance by the artist, the wacky camera angles and confusing editing just distract from the performer and make me wonder what the hell is going on in the control room?

I love a spectacle, I just reserve the right to laugh at it. So if you "hate the Super Bowl",  get some friends with  good senses of  humor together and just check out the halftime show. There's nothing like a room full of people making fun of a shared American pop culture experience. The "spectacular" is usually so god awful over-the-top that it's brilliant in its bad taste.
