I Miss the Halftime Show

Dear Superbowl Folks,

I'm one of the games biggest fans. I've been tuning in to the big game ever since I can remember. I was there for some of the highest highs, like when my favorite musician, Prince, murdered the halftime show with the Purple guitar. I was also there for one of the lowest lows, when Janet Jackson's milk-maker popped out of her shirt. Now I'll be honest, I was in college and at that age and I couldn't have been more excited about what I'd just seen. But now that I'm older, I understand the conservative reaction to the Superbowl's immediately following that one. The infamous wardrobe malfunction couldn't happen again, and I humbly agreed with that.

However, it's been years, six to be exact. We've suffered through Bruce Springsteen halftime shows, and this year we have to deal with The Who...who? Two things are synonymous with the Superbowl; halftime shows and commercials. Well the commercials suck now, but that's not your fault Superbowl people. However you do have control of the halftime performers, and I promise you everybody watching the game is not 45 or older. STOP with the middle aged rock and roll artists. There are plenty of people who can perform and not be as risque as Janet Jackson. I'll take Beyonce over Bob Dillan. I don't want to see the Bee Gee's, or Sting, or Elvis every year for the rest of my life.

Let's put some young blood back into the halftime show. The fans have suffered long enough. One booby don't stop no show.
