The Who? Why?

Like a good lesbian, I watched tonight's SuperBowl game. Eagerly I awaited the quirky commercials. But, alas, every ad that aired was either extremely sexist (men like beer and women have to deal with stupid men), anti-choice (don't even get me started), or something for Budweiser (geesh I get it, Budweiser runs the NFL, CBS, and, apparently, my soul).

p.s. Danica Patrick isn't gay or an actress and Godaddy.com can go fuck itself!

Anyway, besides the disappointing commercials, I was also shocked when the half-time show started and The Who stepped out on stage!

The Who? Exactly.

Don't get me wrong I'm not an ageist and I loved my grandfather, but come on! The fucking Who! Who cares about The Who? Answer: NO ONE!

Not only are The Who not relevant but they are not even American! I mean come on, nothing is more American than football and the SuperBowl! Well maybe except shooting first and asking questions later.

I was very unhappy when I saw the elderly barbershop quartet perform and I'm sure you were too. Here are the acts that would have rocked the SuperBowl:

#1 Anyone else, besides The Who

#2 Prince (he gave the best Half-Time show to date!)

#3 Lady Gaga

#4 Mary J. Blige

#10 ANYONE ELSE BESIDES THE WHO!

The Who? Why? Because The Who provide the theme songs to CSI, CBS's money making franchise. My GF thought I was watching CSI when she came down stairs during half time! Dear Go Daddy: Danika is NOT gay, nor does she need to be to for us to support her career. Rock on, dot com....

For crying out loud! A band (and yes...2 people are STILL a band) who still sings and plays their instruments. Yes...they are in their 60's...yes, they are flat at times....Yes, it's not as powerful as a 25 year-old playing songs....but for f**ks sake, they AT LEAST are MUSICIANS! They are NOT a pretty face, with the right makeup, with the right stylist and PITCH CORRECTION ON THEIR VOICES TO MAKE IT SOUND LIKE THEY CAN SING. They are a f**king rock and roll band!

I hate to be a pedantic lesbian, but Amy Winehouse couldn't be more of a Londoner if she tried!

Bridget - You left out Heart - shame on you - Ann & Nancy would've rocked that Bowl like crazy! I still adore you, even though I have absolutely no idea if you even like their music -
