The Who Tapped to Rock Super Bowl Halftime Show

According to Sports Illustrated, The Who will play the halftime extravaganza at the NFL championship game on Feb. 7 in Miami. The Who is something of an odd choice considering there are still half a dozen 80s megastars still alive who haven’t been asked. Indeed, the rumor mill has it Bon Jovi were the organizers’ first choice, though perhaps as owner of the Philadelphia Soul in the Arena football league, the aging rock star feels it would be a conflict of interest. Or, it could be this.

Instead of moving the clock forward, the NFL has taken the safe step moving further back in time with the classic rockers. Although it’s not quite as frustrating as trying to figure out all the new rules involving the acceptable ways in which defensive players can tackle superstar quarterbacks, it appears the NFL is deathly afraid of modern pop stars since the Janet Jackson nipple flash in 2004. (No, we’re not giving you a link.) After all, how many players have Quadrophenia on their iPods?

The topic for discussion is open. Who would you rather have seen picked for the halftime show? Which songs would you like to see The Who perform?

The Who are a lot less "tacky" than most of the bands that play the half time show (aside from Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen) I will most likely watch the half the halftime show this time not the game.

I love the Who. They still sound great and I think it's a wonderful choice. I'll finally watch the half time show.

Bon Jovi would have been a better choice. After all they just released a new album. Also Jon is no longer the owner of the Soul since the league has folded and is in bankruptcy.
