I'm not a sports fan at all but I always look forward to the Half-Time show and the commercials during the Super Bowl. I was so happy when I found out Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band would be performing at Half-Time '09. I was hoping Bruce would do some of the older songs and I was not disappointed. For 12 minutes I was treated to two of my all time favorite songs from my favorite album/CD Born To Run. "Tenth Avenue Freezeout"and "Born to Run" had me on my feet, dancing and singing along with an excitement I hadn't felt in a long time. It was so wonderful to see Bruce, "Little Steven"(Steve Van Zandt), Max Weinberg (drummer for Conan O'Brien) and Clarence Clemmons on saxophone again. And when he did the "slide" on his knees that took him right into the camera it was amazing. Okay I couldn't get just real excited about Patti but I'm told she's very talented. Bruce is actually my age and it was really neat to see how good he looked. Still a little scruffy but wow!!!!
He also sang "Working on a Dream" from the CD "Working on a Dream , and finished with "Glory Days" from Born in the U.S.A. I'll leave it to someone else to express their criticism of his performance. All I know is "The Boss is Back" and he is still fabulous!!!
