Haters going to hate
I took off my sports reporter hat on Sunday and was an unabashed Atlanta Falcons fan. I didn’t want to see the New England Patriots win a fifth Super Bowl championship. So by halftime, I was in a great mood, the Falcons were up 21-3. I was ready for Lady Gaga’s performance. What would she wear, would she get political and would she lip sync? She kept her wardrobe conservative, avoided saying ‘Trump’ and sang live. Then her showmanship kicked in. She jumped off the roof of the stadium, had drones as a backdrop and fans with choreographed lighting effects.
Lady Gaga’s Performance
I’m not the biggest Gaga fan, but she has some pipes and it was one of the better shows in recent Super Bowl history. I should have stopped watching before the third quarter. Unfortunately, I kept watching and the Patriots pulled off the largest comeback in Super Bowl history and broke a bunch of other records.
I f-ing hate the Patriots and wanted them blown out. I wanted the ugg-wearing, ball deflating, primadonna to admit defeat to a better team and Belichick’s status of the best coach of all-time tarnished. I got none of that. That’s why Lady Gaga performance put the Super Bowl to shame.
