Cowherd Vs. Imp Of The Perverse

Posted in Gridiron, Rock Und Roll, Sports Radio at 5:48 pm by

Mulling the over the possibility of Prince headling the Super Bowl 41 halftime show next February, ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd — while praising the NFL’s efforts to attract mass-appeal acts like the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Aerosmith, etc. — suggested that perhaps the halftime show would be more watchable “if they got someone who was making popular music today.”

Either Cowherd is amongst those who don’t consider ’3121′ to be a return to form, or he’s the sort of cretin who thinks that stadium rock nostalgia acts should be limited to the pale variety. So it’s been a couple of decades since Prince was the planet’s hottest attraction — he should fit right in with the pantheon Cowherd considers acceptable.

    dan patrick did the same on his radio show yesterday. he read the lyrics from “when doves cry” on the air, making the assumption that prince would even perform that song (he does have a new album, as you noted) and implied that those lyrics have nothing to do with football. well, of course, mr. patrick. and since when does anything to do with Northern Ireland or bedding NYC divorcees have anything to do with professional sports?

    patrick went on to say that u2 are still relevant because, of course, they had a new album out at the time.
