Media should focus on participants in game

Media coverage of the actions of Janet (old enough to know better) Jackson and Justin (?) Timberlake at the Super Bowl has been far too repetitive.

More attention should be given to the participants in the game. In my opinion, the greatness of this particular contest overshadowed any of the significant title games in the past, including the “Ice Bowl” (Jerry Kramer’s block upon Jethro Pugh) between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboy’s and the NFL championship between the victorious John Unitas- led Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants.

Another positive feature of the Super bowl festivities was the inspiring performance of Beyonce Knowles singing our National Anthem. Her demeanor, elegance, dignity, beauty and dress far overshadowed the irregularities that occurred in the halftime debacle.

Another facet of the event that was left underemphasized was the memorial tribute to the fallen astronauts one year ago. It seemed to be done in good taste and respect.
