Regarding Bruce Springsteen at the Superbowl

SECOND UPDATE: The show prolly wasn't live. So, for those keeping score at home, Bruce Springsteen's Working on a Dream sucks, doing an exclusive "best of" for Wal-Mart is an aesthetic betrayal of his blue collar roots, and he pulled an Ashlee Simpson with a backing track. Everything is crazy here in Crazy Land!

I'm a casual sports fan at best, but I kinda dug last night's Superbowl. It helped that Pennsylvania's own Pittsburgh Steelers were there - anyone else man-crushing on James Harrison for his 100-yard return for a touchdown? - but of course the main attraction was really Bruce Springsteen's triumphant halftime show.

Working on a Dream might be a dud, but The E Street Band's live set isn't. Sexist commercials aside, this was probably my favorite Superbowl in a while. Great halftime show, a home team that actually got the job done, and a pretty close game overall. And for those looking for a repeat of Bruce's crotch slide into the camera, here's an animated GIF:
