The Other Side (of the Halftime Show)

Let's first reveal the set list as it happened:
  1. Tenth Avenue Freezeout
  2. Born to Run
  3. Working on a Dream
  4. Glory Days
I did correctly predict 2 of the 4 songs that were played but incorrectly predicted that only 3 songs would make it when the Boss managed to eke in a 4th.
Before I continue, I've watched at least 30 Super Bowls - without question, the greatest 12 minutes in Super Bowl history happened tonight and it had nothing to do with the game itself (though the last play before the half was arguably one of the greatest plays ever).
There really is no equal performer to Springsteen - he just knows precisely how to do it.
I could go on an analyze the song selections, the arrangements, the banter, but the truth is...there is no reason to it and would only end up being pretentious at best on my part.
Rock on Bloggerville!

How about the crotch slide into the camera? Did that bring you to climax?
