Prince @ The Super Bowl
Pretty good game. Who doesn't like sloppy, hard-hitting, football?
The halftime show, however, was far better. Prince went through a half-dozen tunes, covering Dylan to the Foo Fighters, and climaxed with a thunderous version of "Purple Rain"-- in the damn rain!
During much of the pre-game hype there was a lot of talk about Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith being the first Black head coaches in a Super Bowl, and how great that it was happening during Black History Month, but when Prince got on stage and the FAMU marching band, dressed, in what Basart called "Tron uniforms" got their groove on, Black History Month truly shifted into a higher gear.
More Prince and some goodies after the jump...
