19Guess Who’s Playing the Super Bowl Halftime This Year?

Once again aiming to hire the performer least likely to reveal an erogenous zone on live television, the NFL has selected Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to headline at this year’s Super Bowl in Tampa.

  1. Looks like I’ll be taking halftime as an opportunity to drink more.

  2. that’s blasphemy in these parts, wellhonestlynow! I take it you’re on the west coast and nowhere near Jersey? personally I have a little bruce crush and am hoping he exposes something.

  3. I’m in Massachusetts. I love Bruce but I’m getting a little sick of the old school theme the past few years. Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Bruce.

    Like most 20 somethings I’ll be sitting there going “Who the fuck is that?” until “Jessie’s Girl” comes on (That is the right guy, right?)
    And even then I won’t be impressed or even tempted to watch.

    And I only tune into the superbowl to see the halftime show. Fuck that shit. I’ll turn up MTV, light some sparklers and have my own halftime show.

    Sit down all you whiny losers, he’s The Boss!

    Halftime has become a good time to stand in line for the bathroom at the big Super Bowl parties. I must admit, I was annoyed a few years back when they chose Prince (I never really GOT him), but it was one of the best halftime shows in my memory. Singing Purple Rain on a purple stage with rain pouring down…it was awesome.

    Maybe Bruce can pull it off too. He’ll have the whole Garden State cheering for him…but that’s about all, I think.

    @ Jen B. That was funny! (I just can’t type “LOL”–it goes against my grain). And Bruce looks in that photo like he’s having trouble just keeping the guitar in the air. Hold on, Bruce!
    I hope he doesn’t expose any zones, erogenous or otherwise. Eh, what do I care, I never watch the Superbowl.

    I seriously DO NOT like The Boss, he’s right there with Brian Adams. Ugh!

  10. princess pink says:

    what the f is bryan adams up to these days anyway??

  11. jk says:

    You take that back Jen B. I was a HUGE Rick Springfield fan. I even had a poster of him on my wall. What did Bruce ever give us besides Courtney Cox?

  12. Alex says:

    If they really want to stay in the old-school theme Axl Rose and the gang would be more fun…

  13. just me says:

    BORING!!!!!!! Bring Prince back!

  14. joan says:

    this is old news (pun intended), really i heard this like 3 months ago.

  15. joan says:

    i’m just so with it.

  16. Asta says:

    I usually watch the puppy bowl on Animal Planet anyway.

  17. Persistent Cat says:

    I fucking love Bruce Springsteen. The man is 59 and he still puts on one hell of a fucking good show.

    I bow to the master.

  18. piedlourde says:

    Actually, I wouldn’t mind Bruce showing some skin. He’s still a hot bitch!

  19. WTF Bruce?!? says:

    Bruce Springsteen?!?!? Are you kidding me?!?! Yeah, some say he’s an “icon” but c’mon, how about someone a little more exciting and entertaining?!? Oh well, maybe next year they will make a better choice.
