Super Bowl XLV
It actually tied for the highest ratings with the 1987 Super Bowl (Broncos vs Giants). Last night's ratings were 47.9 and for good reason! I thought it was a really good game; but my only complaint was the halftime show. I have seen BEP live and I really don't think they were at their best last night - not even close. The messed up sound system didn't help either. The moment everyone seems to be talking about is the botched national anthem (sung by one of my favorites, Christina Aguilera). Yes, she fucked it up; but think of all the times in her career that she has sung it correctly. I think she still sounded spectacular. Christina was interviewed afterwards and said that she got so caught up in the moment that she lost her place; but that she still hopes "that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through." We still love you, Christina (even after Bionic).
