Halftime History

Thought this was interesting. Bring up at the game... hopefully you won't get a beatdown for knowing this.


Dear Yahoo!:
Who performed at the first Super Bowl halftime show?
New Port Richey, Florida

Dear Conor:
Nostalgic for a time when wardrobe malfunctions and pyrotechnics didn't detract from the big game? Too bad. The Super Bowl halftime show has been a gaudy train wreck for years, and we don't imagine it'll become classy anytime soon. Still, there was a time when the event wasn't quite so over-the-top...

The Super Bowl's official site features more information than any sane person could ever possibly use -- including an extensive history of the equally loved and loathed halftime show. According to the Halftime Honor Roll, the first game's entertainment wasn't Elvis or the Beatles -- it was the bands from the Universities of Arizona and Michigan. In fact, the game didn't feature a "big name" entertainer until Super Bowl IV, when Broadway star Carol Channing took the stage.

In years since, the show has featured performers ranging from respectable (James Brown) to "what were they thinking" (Brian Boitano). As for this year's spectacular, the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince will take the stage. Let's go crazy!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Watching the Cubs lose is the opposite of appreciating a fine wine ó itís like watching a car accident in progress. Itís horrifying, yet gruesomely riveting, and you canít help but watch and sympathize with the poor souls inside.
