Maybe CBS and the NFL picked The Who becasue 3 of their songs are themes to the 3 CBS CSI series . I read somewhere that they played for free also so that atleast helps with them kind of sucking. Better than Bruce Springstein and Tom Pettty though. Overall though i thought the game was good, some nice lead changes, and some aggressive play calling.

The commercials weren't as over the top as usual and the original years of BUD BOWL might have livened this up too.As far as the game goes,it was close from beginning to end which means it was good.OC posted about the last couple as opposed to the blowouts in the 90's and he is right!

I watched it off and on. I figured when the Colts where up 10 it was over. Checked back in the 2nd half and got more interested. Wow, we have a game going on here.
Didn't watch half time or the commercials. The 'Who" doesn't appeal to me and I hate commercials.
I don't have much interest in either team but I was glad to see the Saints win. The people of New Orleans and the state needed something good to cheer about and lift their spirits after what they went through with Katrina. For that reason I am glad the Saints won. They needed a "happy time" and I'm glad they got it and have something special to celebrate.

Does anyone at home even watch the halftime show? Halftime is when you eat, re-beer and talk about missed opportunities in the first half.

They did get their teams to the Superbowl , however.
Marmac, I am starting to think you are obsessed with Brett Favre. You seem to bring him up more than anyone. I have to say though, no one is saying ooh I knew Manning would let them down, interception blah blah blah..just imagine if that had been Favre to blow it like that...oh yea...anyway...overall the superbowl was kind of boring only because we are not fans of either team although we still wathed the whole game. Commercials like pretty much everyone else has been saying were awful. I really thought the half time show was great. I am not a big Who fan but was impressed with how good they sounded live. I guess now a days we are so used to lipsyncing it's refreshing to hear a real live band.

----"overall the superbowl was kind of boring only because we are not fans of either team"--

If your name ( 10,000Lakes) refers to Minnesota, I would imagine you would consider most superbowls boring ( using your criteria )

Heck, if you want a really boring Superbowl, go back to 1970.

The Vikings team was #1 in the league in points scored, #1 in the league in fewest points allowed, and odds makers had them a 12 point favorite.

Yet, a team called the Kansas City Chiefs beat them 23-7.

Yup, be carefull what you wish for ( Vikings in the Superbowl)
They , also, played in some of the most boring games. ( and lost every one of them )
