As chronicled here, I’m a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan. So, you can understand why I have been kind down on the NFL lately. Nevertheless, there is nothing like the Super Bowl.
Obviously, it’s always a good time when the game lives up to the hype but, in reality, no one truly cares. We just like to get together with friends and rate the commercials anyways. Oh, and also talk about how crappy the halftime is show, right?
Well, remember Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999? John Elway and the Broncos won their second consecutive title after dismantling the Falcons. Of course you don’t because the game was putrid. But it didn’t really matter because that was the best halftime show in Super Bowl history. That year marked the debut of Halftime Heat – the special episode of WWF Sunday Night Heat highlighted by Mankind’s victory over The Rock to capture the WWF title in their infamous empty arena match. Great idea by the Federation (except for the campy finish) and I suggest they do it again next year.
Incredibly, its been nine years since this match and if you aren’t a big Tom Petty fan I suggest you whip out your computer during halftime and watch the video below. You know, for old-time sake.
