Lets break it down.........

  • I like Christina Aguilera. Her music and talent I believe are great. But if you are going to sing the National Anthem of your country, THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA, at the biggest sporting event in the world, in front of the largest audience your will ever perform in front of (TV & crowd). PLEASE study and know the words. Is that too much to ask for. Some I've read call it nerves or a sincere case of the jitters. NO! You are a professional performer who has been doing this since your days with Disney in 1993. Been on TV and movies, numerous world wide concert tours, featured at the 2007 NBA ALL*Star half-time show. Now your were given the honor of singing the Star Spangled Banner and you blew it.The singer issued this statement late on Sunday, February 6, 2011. "I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place. I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."

In a Jan. 24 statement when it was confirmed that she would sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl, Aguilera said, "I have been performing the anthem since I was seven years old and I must say the Super Bowl is a dream come true." Next time maybe just right the words on your arm like NFL quarterbacks have the plays.

  • Now itwas, Fergie , and Taboo's turn to take this stage and in my opinion failed to live up to the standards set by there predecessors. True, the sound and using backtracks at Cowboy Stadium was horrible. Even bringing out Slash and Usher could not save this show.  Oh yea, they also changed the words to one of there songs "Where Is the Love?" saying,"In America we need to get things straight/Obama let's get these kids educated/Create jobs so the country stays stimulated/This is dedicated to all the innovators." To me, the are nothing more then a "Studio" band with so-so talent.

  • Then of course there was the Super Bowl XLV commercial's. Some watch the game just for them. There were some good ones, my favorite is Car Buying Someone has to go first. But putting Joan Rivers head on someones else "hot" body for was stupid. A couple of themes were that cars are back as there were quite a few from the automaking industry. Lots of upcoming movies also were very prominunt as well. Lets face it, at over 3 million dollars for a 30 second spot it's getting very expensive for the little guy. Two other ones I want to mention were the Chrysler  / Eminem 2 minute spot,WAY TO LONG, and the Sketchers / Kim Kardashian, NICE AND HOT. Watch them all here→SUPER BOWL XLV ADS

  • Now the game. Two good teams, Green Bay Packers 31 and the Pittsburgh Steelers 25, fought it out till the very last minute. But this game was far from a classic. Green Bay should have blown away the Steelers. Aaron Rodgers was simply brillant at 24 of 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns without an interception named MVP of SB XLV. It could have been much more as at least two Packer wide receivers dropped two cleat TD passes. They also lost several key members of there team including cornerback and team leader Charles Woodson to a broken collarbone. Valuable veteran receiver Donald Driver went down with a bad ankle in the first quarter and play-making rookie cornerback Sam Shields hurt his shoulder and was out of the game for a significant portion of the second half.
  • The Packers forced the Pittsburgh Steelers into three turnovers in Super Bowl XLV, converting each into touchdowns. Big Ben Roethlisberger finished with 25 of 40 passes for 263 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.This game was entertaining, but far from a classic or even a very good game.
  • The Super Bowl trophy was renamed in 1970 in memory of legendary Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi after his sudden death from cancer to commemorate his victories in the first two Super Bowls. NOW it is back in the Frozen Tundra of GREEN BAY!
