It’s a good thing it isn’t below freezing in Boston today because everyone’s tears from the Patriots loss in the Super Bowl would have turned this place into a Kmart version of the Frozen set. The Philadelphia Eagles got their first Super Bowl win last night at the expense of Tom Brady and the rest of the New England Patriots. While most people were focusing on the commercials, the game, or anything that wasn’t Justin Timberlake, a few of us were keeping tabs on what Tom’s ladies, past and present, had to say about the game. Don’t worry. They had thoughts. Continue reading
Kevin Hart was born in Philadelphia, so naturally he’s a huge Eagles fan and was really happy to be at the Super Bowl with his team. But he drank a lot and got extremely messy.
Like many Americans, my husband and I watched the “Inverse Super Bowl” which means we fast forwarded through the game and only watched the commercials (and the half time show to see if Prince’s ghost would pimp slap Justin Timberlake). This year’s crop of ads came in three distinct flavors: Pandering Displays of Diversity, Fun Ones and Head Scratchers. Here are some of the ones I can actually remember.
Much like many people this time of year, Pink has been fighting against the flu for the past few days. But unlike everyone else, Pink was booked to belt out the national anthem at the Super Bowl in Minneapolis last night. Unfortunately Pink wasn’t better by the time she was supposed to hit the field and Star Spangled Banner-ed the house down. So Pink performed sick. And I lost $20, because she didn’t do it while clutching a bottle of Tylenol and an electric blanket.
Joey Fatone wasn’t lying when he said that NSYNC was not going to inject some hotness (don’t act like Joey Fatone thrusting his crotch ain’t the epitome of hotness) into the Super Bowl halftime show. Janet Jackson wasn’t lying when she said that she was not going to save the Super Bowl halftime show by popping up on the stage to pull a front panel on Justin Timberlake’s pants and reveal his pierced right nut. Sheila E wasn’t lying when she said that there would not be a Prince hologram during the Super Bowl halftime show. There wasn’t a Prince hologram, but there was a blurry ass Prince projection on a giant wrinkly sheet.
When it was confirmed that Justin Timberlake is headlining the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, many said that he should rise from the bowels of the stage flanked by his boys Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Joey Fatone, followed by letting Janet Jackson rip part of his pants off. But even though Justin and Janet are allegedly good now, she wasn’t approached by him to join him on stage. As for NSYNC, Joey Fatone swore that there wasn’t going to be a reunion at the Super Bowl. As it turns out, Joey might have been fibbing, because every member of NSYNC have been spotted in Minnesota this week.
