NFL Plays it Safe; Tom Petty Tabbed for Super Bowl XLII Halftime Show by Bacon Bits

Prince’s phallic silhouette drew the ire of some in the media and perhaps a few NFL execs.

From Prince to Tom Petty? Talk about a heartbreaker! Janet Jackson set the Super Bowl halftime show back about 25 years when she flashed her boob, but that doesn’t mean the people want geriatrics! After Prince’s brilliant show last year, we’re not sure how the NFL could get it so wrong by booking Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. No offense to Petty or his fan, but the Super Bowl is the biggest TV spectacle in the world and a wrinkly white dude with morals just seems, well, limp.

Something the NFL is getting right is making the Super Bowl “the greenest Super Bowl ever” by working with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. With the Three R’s a given, the plan is to carbon-neutralize the event by re-planting trees on White Mountain Apache tribal land and in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest—areas of Arizona devastated by the Rodeo-Chediski forest fire of 2002.

While this year’s Super Bowl losers appear to be the halftime show and advertisers, the big winners are things we definitely want to keep around: the environment and the Lingerie Bowl. Bacon Bits

Wow, you are a freakin moron. People from teenagers all the way up to Petty’s age love his music. The man constantly puts out gold and platinum albums with each release. Prince is a hiccuping pop fairy from the 80’s. Tom Petty is rock’n’roll royalty who has never sold out and keeps pumping out fantastic rock’n’roll.
