I just found it full of irony. All the Who's angst-ridden corporate bashing tirades in medley form at the biggest corporate event in America.

And who keeps picking British bands to play at America's biggest sporting event?

And poorly performed at that.

Did anyone else notice the drummer looked exactly like Nigel Tufton?

That's the "biggest sporting event" in America? Seriously?

According to the Neilson Company, last night's Super Bowl had the biggest audience ever, beating out the final episode of M-A-S-H.

When asked for a number, they said it was 'a metric butt-ton of folks!'

I never once wondered what Pete's stomach looked like, but hey, now I know.

And why did the camera spend so much time focusing on the drummer? If I were filling in for one of the greatest, I'd want as little attention as possible. On a Who docu I saw once, Roger said the first time they played with Keith, he had his back to him when Keith started playing and it sounded like a jet engine taking off.

It sounds like a "lahk" of people were watching.

The engineer that had Pete's guitar pot turned up way too hot. The man hasn't played legit lead in nearly a decade. He can barely hear anymore. The vocals were exactly what I'd expect from a 60yo rocker that's blown out his pipes two decades ago. Did it suck? To some. To me they were alright. Not great. Not good. But alright. Wish they would have just stuck to two or three songs instead. Maybe next year we'll get to see Van Halen.
