How Bizarre, How Bizarre ...

was that half-time show by The Who? Sad to see old rockers who should have retired from active performances years ago. When will my now-geriatric generation ever learn? Gee, Beyonce wasn't available?

This sums it up:

From David Bellavia: Hipster Douchebag: The CSI Super Bowl Halftime Show
But it’s been nearly 50 years. Kieth and John and gone, and Pete and Roger struggle on, more a cabaret act than a band. This doesn’t mean they don’t rock — they both own a stage better than any number of bands a third their age. But, for the last 20 years, they’ve been more about giving the people what they want than hoping they die before they get old.
It was sad. So very sad to see these two hopping about the stage on their arthritic knees and stainless steel hip replacements...

I want to see Green Day doing halftime... BEFORE they get so old that everybody makes fun of them.
