Pure trash at Super Bowl

The Super Bowl halftime “entertainment” had to offend any right-thinking person. It was total garbage. The “artists” should have been introduced to the audience from a large debris box and then re-deposited therein for their exit. Pure trash!

The idiot who massaged his crouch while allegedly singing particularly angered me. It must have been his manual thought process. And did we really see Janet Jackson’s breast or was it one she borrowed from Michael? If this halftime extravaganza is entertainment, then “we have a problem, Houston.”

The rendering of our National Anthem was not as bad as some, but certainly not what it should have been. An anthem is a sacred vocal rendering. It is our National Anthem and should be preformed accordingly. I see no place, here, for “artistic” license. That can be saved for halftime.
