Well, that’s over for another year. No Manning boys in the Superbowl this year to give the game some interest and the damned Steelers won.
One highlight was the Cash4Gold commercial with MC Hammer and Ed McMahon. That was a stitch! Poor Ed misses his golden toilet!!
The lowest of the low was the singing of the National Anthem. This is our national song, people! Have some respect!
This has to be the most recognized song in America. We all know the tune and the words, unless it’s sung by some cretin who decides “to make the song their own.” What crap! Just sing the thing!! We want to sing along, too. However, if you mess around with the timing and tune so much as to make it unrecognizable, forget it. No one can even tell what song you’re attempting to sing.
The girl who sang it tonight, Jennifer Husdon, is overcoming some personal tragedies, I get that. Good for her. However, that does not give her license to butcher our national song! And she butchered it, right good! Completely changed the rhythm, pacing and notes of the song. I think she got the words correct, if I remember correctly. That would be the only way to tell what song she was singing. Without an announcer telling us what the song was, we would have never known! It was probably the worst performance of the National Anthem I have ever heard.
Who told her that was a good idea? You know she practiced it that way beforehand. No one goes out and sings a song on national TV in front of 100 million people cold. Who ever told her she should sing it that way is also an idiot. Most of us don’t like our national song treated like the latest hip-hop noise. She’s getting very bad advise from somebody who is doing her a grave disservice and deserves to be slapped.
SING THE SONG THE WAY IT’S WRITTEN! Save your ‘interpretations’ for a more frivolous occasion and more frivolous music!!!
