In defense of Steven Tyler’s “National Anthem” at the AFC Championship game…

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, is getting a lot of negative critiques toward his performance of the “National Anthem”, at the AFC Championships game with the Patriots vs. the Ravens. Some of you may be wondering what my thoughts are on his performance.

What are my thoughts? I thought it was an average performance. It didn’t suck, wasn’t great, just average. As in, “okay”.

You see here’s the thing, when special guest famous singers sing the National Anthem at a Football game, everyone expects the performance to be an in your face, great performance. Everyone expects the singing to be absolutely perfect.

This is fuckin’ Steven Tyler here. He’s a rock n’ roll singer, you see. You’re not going to hear an opera or classical voice out of this guy if that’s what you’re expecting. He clearly sang the National Anthem in a rock n’ roll kind of way. He always performed that way, whether he’s performing a band or acapella. That’s just the way he sings. You’re not going to hear a Barry Manilow or a Luciano Pavorotti out of this guy.

True, Steven could have sang it a little better in the beginning but I thought he rocked it some toward the middle, he hit the high notes pretty well which is what I bet nobody else could do.

Still, you need to give him credit for singing for real and not lip syncing. He also didn’t forget the lyrics and didn’t mess up any of the words. It was a little better than Christina Aguilera’s performance that’s for sure.

Steven even did a little scream toward the end there, which is pretty ballsy since it was freezing cold out there, probably, you can see the cold breath coming out of his mouth. I mean, the fans seem to have a good time with him ’cause they were singing along with him toward the end.

The performance wasn’t all that bad, in my opinion.

Tim Tebow makes me hope the Denver Broncos make the Superbowl this year…

I haven’t been following NFL much this year as much as I did last year, but I ended up watching the last Bronco’s game over the weekend and I was very impressed with it. That was one of the best games I’ve seen in years. Especially the way Tebow ended it, quite amazing. I missed it the last time he did that incredible run, but I caught his second one, the Broncos vs. the Steelers.

People online have been having mixed opinions on what he did. Some liked it and some didn’t. I thought that was pretty incredible running. He has pretty amazing cardio. He must be doing a lot of running at home.

After seeing that one game, makes me want to follow the rest of the Broncos games to see if they make the Superbowl. I’m really rooting for the Broncos now. Incredible stuff. Like Tebow or not, you’re looking at a future Hall of Famer legend here. Tebow’s 80 yard touchdown pass, will be a historic thing, no matter what you think of it.

GO TEBOW!

The Jets vs. The Colts last night…

Yes, I watched the Jets vs. The Colts game last night. Sat there and watched the whole thing. It was an incredible game. A history making game. Thanks to Nick Folk who did a classic field goal kick at the very end. The Jets came this close to losing. I’m happy the Jets made the play offs.

I’ve followed NFL most of this year. I’ve really grown into loving football. As you get older, you start to get into more sports. It’s a maturing kind of thing.

I know the Jets aren’t the greatest team but they did good last night. I always root for NY, the home state team. I hope a NY team will make the Superbowl this year and I’m crossing my fingers, the Jets will be in the Superbowl. Hope so.

Another website claims Pete Townshend is a sex offender but doesn’t give proof…

Why are all these child abuse organizations saying that Pete Townshend is a registered sex offender but they don’t have proof? It’s because they have none.

Another website claiming Pete is registered, but these child abuse websites fail to show Pete’s actual sex offender registry to prove it?

If you’re going to accuse someone of being a registered sex offender, you must prove it. Where is Pete’s actual registry? That hasn’t been seen online yet.

Sorry, but the NFL is not going to take the Who off the Superbowl Halftime. Kudos to the NFL for not listening to these assholes. I for one, am looking forward to the Who’s performance as they have been my favorite band for many years and they still rock. I’m sure the Who will put on an incredible performance.

Report: Child abuse organizations trying to get the Who off the Superbowl gig….

As predicted, Child Abuse organizations are desperately trying to get the Who off the Superbowl halftime gig. The Who were officially booked to play this year’s Superbowl halftime. As some may know, Pete Townshend was in trouble years back by looking up child pornography online as for research from his own child abuse experience as a child for an autobiography he was writing. He admitted to doing it but he was cleared of the charges after knowing it was just research.

What do you think? Do you think the Who should be able to play the Superbowl?

I vote yes.

I think Pete is innocent and of course, some others will always think he’s guilty no matter the situation. Pete was cleared of the charges, let the man move on already, you jealous bastards!

Report: Springsteen promises he won’t let Superbowl audience down during halftime, he wants to party!!!

Look like Springsteen and the E Street Band will be playing their greatest hits at the Superbowl halftime after all. Springsteen revealed that he promises a good time for the audience at the game. Him and the band only get to play a 12 minute set, which will only fit about 3 or 4 songs. Of course, Springsteen refuses to say what songs him and the band will perform, he wants them to be a surprise.

See the article here:

I’m betting your money that he will definitely play a few songs off “Born In the U.S.A.”, he’ll play the title track, “Glory Days” and maybe “Dancing In the Dark” too.

Rumours swirling the web, that Springsteen may pull up Courtney Cox from the Superbowl audience for him to dance with during “Dancing in the Dark”. Could this actually happen? Courtney Cox from “Friends” TV show will be at the Superbowl to dance with the boss on stage? We’ll have to wait and find out!

On a side note, Max Weinberg and Labamba Rosenberg will be performing in the band as well, as they are taking time off from the Conan O’ Brien show to rehearse for the Superbowl gig with Springsteen. Weinberg has been a member of the E Street band for many years.

I’m looking forward to the Superbowl this Sunday. I’m no NFL fan but I do watch the Superbowl every year. I’m also looking forward to seeing how Jennifer Hudson is going to sing the “National Anthem”, that’ll be interesting to see too.
