They just showed the partying going on just up the street, IN the street, on TV! It's CRAZY out there. Even wilder here than on Bourbon or in the French Quarter. It is impossible to drive anywhere... party on!!

Great game! I loved the pictures from the French Quarter last night. Folks in NO really know how to party.

IMHO, the Who were not that great. I loved them back in the day but there comes a time to hang up the microphone. Dang I feel old looking at them.

My Sister called 4 times from the ole PacNW - they dumped tv in frugal mode recently - she found it on the radio.

The bats in my wrist BP meter died so I said screw it and watched the game - skipped my fruit/veggie diet plate - dirty rice(Zaterains natch) with bits of my smoked brisket, chicken wings, Fresca - so I would last to the end of the game.

Whoopee! A lot closer than the score would indicate - our local New Orleans boy Peyton put forth a valiant effort - like Brett from Kiln the game before.

heh heh heh - yep, yep very good. .

I seriously agree. Fun to watch but in a sort of pathetic way. In fairness, it must be a tough room to perform in.

Sean Payton's decision to onside kick to start the second half? Made of brass, that's all I can say. Solid brass.

In the second half, the Saints clearly established themselves as the better team.

I totally agree; they were sad to watch. What is it with the Superbowl and aging rockers anyhow??

CNBC is saying that this year's Superbowl was the most watched television show of all time. Amazing!

Still not venturing out, though I might later this afternoon.

I come on I really liked the Who, although if they limited future half time shows to people who born after the first superbowl started, I wouldn't complain.

The 30 something teacher sitting next to me called them the CSI group, that did make me feel old.

I LOVE The Who, but that show sucked...........they seemed out of breath and out of tune at times. Can't the Super Bowl get anyone else? Heck, I would have rather seen Carrie Underwood sing some more.........

Carrie Underwood's shoes looked almost as big as she was, at least from the angle the full body shot was shown from...

I liked hearing the Who. I saw them live back in the summer of 1969 (I think? back in the mists of time) at the Fillmore West in SF and I will never forget it. Best concert of my life and practically a religious experience.

Sure, they are not, today, what they were in 1969. But who of us are? I felt like I was listening to old friends. Got a big kick out of it.

I was dismayed at the "Oh beautiful for spacious skies" at first, because I thought that was substituting for the national anthem!! So I was happy to hear Carrie Underwood sing our national anthem afterwards. Whew. She really NAILED that difficult high note at the end, "FREEEEE!!"

Great game and glad to see the Saints win. Same division as my Bucs so I was rooting for them. W2R, you are so happy and I'm happy for you. Does this mean you might change your mind about Kansas City?
