I enjoyed another ‘babyboomer worthy’ Superbowl halftime show with Bruce Springteen. He entertained the crowd with “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out,” “Born to Run” and “Glory Days” and although The Boss did a great job, I missed “Born in the U.S.A.”
Halftime entertainment aside, Superbowl XLIII has given us an exciting first half as the score is now 17 – 7 as the 3rd quarter begins. The highlight play has to be Pittsburgh’s James Harrison’s interception at the end of the first half. The Arizonia Cardinals looked to be ready to score when QB Kurt Warner threw an interception to long time Steeler Harrison (Kent State) who ran 100+ yards to score a touchdown. His run was the longest in Superbowl history.
As for me, I don’t necessarily have a favorite in this game. As an AFC guy (Browns and Bengals) I find myself favoring the Steelers (gag!), but wouldn’t mind seeing the NFC underdog Cardinals come up with a long deserved Superbowl win. It’s nice for once to just be able to enjoy the game with out the emotional roller coaster.
