It should have been the Purple

or,

I coulda been a contender...

Well fans, it's a good thing that we

were treated to another epic Super Bowl contest, because it appears that whoever is putting together the half time extravaganza is running our of superannuated rock stars with which to regale the baby-boomer generation, apparently the most-coveted advertising demographic for now.

Who will we get next? The Monkees? Herman's Hermits? It is truly the end of history when they trot out Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers for the Super Bowl halftime entertainment. Bring back Janet Jackson and her trick wardrobe, I say.

In the meantime, the Patriots will have to go back to Boston, lick their wounds, and plot against next year. What are the odds that Randy Moss, now an exemplar and role model to little-leaguers everywhere, won't have a relapse and find some lady cop to run over? Will Bill Belichick realize that he blew it all when he changed out of his ratty old sweatshirt into a colored model? What if Tom Brady eats too much Burger King and develops jowls? That operation has a lot of regrouping to do.

Out at Winter Park they're all wandering around mumbling, "I coulda been a contender." How could the Giants, who the Vikes destroyed in November, skate through the playoffs as a wild card and eventually derail the Patriots' shot at football immortality? It should have been the Purple. Wait till next year.
