When the nfl sees that there half time ratings dip out of control they will realize that the boss is a bad choice..
Least its a better choice than watching Janet Jackson & Justin Timberlake. A has been & a never will be, was the WORST halftime show I ever saw.

With your "logic" by the time the NFL made a bad choice by selecting Bruce Springsteen, the show will be over & there is NOTHING the NFL can do about it. Its like reading your posts here.. by the time we read your rants & raves, there is nothing we can do.

Move on, Bobbie.

Domestic Violence is NOTHING to make light of. For you to even think something like that, shows your maturity level.

THOUSANDS of men & women, married & not married, suffer some form of violence in the home each & every day, some gets reported, some doesn't. Some even DIE, at the hands of a loved one. Someone they had placed their love & trust in. For someone like YOU, to make light of violence at home, shows the rest of us civilized people, what a person you are. I pray you didn't breed. Because your attitude gets passed to the offspring.

Besides, at least I KNEW who my parents were. Both of them.

Absolutely correct. The music industry for the past decade plus has been absolutely pathetic in what they've produced and consider as "talent". Let's all start a write in campaign to get the Jonas Brothers to "entertain" us. If they're busy, perhaps Mariah Carey and her legion of lambs are available.

earth wind and fire? Weren't they just down in your neck of the woods brother bob? Yeah, they were down there in good ole Wal-Dorf, close to the Wal-Mart where you do most of your shopping.

In all honesty, I'd take just about anyone on your list, other than Madonna and Cher. I doubt Quincy would appeal to the masses, however. I think he's got a rather narrow appeal. Unfotunately, I think they'd pick Cher before him.

My thoughts exactly...Most of today's music is crap. Except for the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana. Or maybe we could see a wardrobe malfunction by Brittney Spears

Stevie WAS selected, but he was passed over, because he couldn't see where to sign the contract.
Cher has a clause in her contract to only perform in VEGAS for next 2 years.
Madonna is helping A-Rod with his louisville slugger.
Quincy Jones makes more as a producer, than a performer.
Elton John is under same contract as Cher, performing ONLY in Vegas at Ceasers Palace.
Earth, Wind & Fire?? The fire was snuffed out on them back in 1980.
Bobbie.. I think your stuck in a 70's time warp, where your hatred towards others & your musical knowledge (lack thereof) is showing.
Besides, they will not allow you to leave your gated community of the PG County jail, before your sentence expires in June. So you & your jail wife (Bubba) can take & hopefully pass the humanity course, before then.
Good Stuff...Quincy Jones???

Country Club??
Is that what they call the PG Jail these days?
When you go to p/up the soap for Bubba, I hear its ok to give him a reach-around.
The "CLUB" can't be all that good, if your constantly making these posts. Unless your dishwashing duties are covered by your cellmate.
of course not...as my cellmate your father is pretty laidback ..when hes not selling his body for camel filters hes pretty chill

How many musicians do we have here? Want to jam? I need a bass player, a drummer, and a keyboard player at least. I have my guitars and amps, so I'm ready. We could do some classic rock, blues, jazz fusion, whatever.

Springsteen is a washed up no-talent sorry excuse for an artist.
Elton John is more macho and more of a "man" than Brucie-poo.
Additionally, he's a socialist Obama-lover who is afraid to stand up to the Union and Mafia bosses. Wussie.
Elton John would probably enjoy your tender sphincter, Brucie!

Springsteen had the common sense to campaign against d.W.i. Bush the second time the pretzel choking moron ran, which in light of the destruction of the US by the d.W.i.-Chain-ey Junta makes the Boss look about a hundred times smarter than you constapo and talibangelical blowhards.

However, despite a good show and energy level, the Boss didn't sing that well and didn't look terribly coordinated moving about.

Way better than the other suggestions in this thread, though.

Hey constapo idiots: If you don't like criticism of d.W.i. Bush then why don't we say you morons can be the specific ones to pay to clean up the Pretzeldent's big messes he left behind, such as the wrecked economy, the wrecked middle and near east, and so on?
