Speaking of torture, I'm going inflict some on myself and predict the winner of tonight's Super Bowl.

I've been wrong the last three years, so what the heck.

Falcons 24 Patriots 17.

I say the Pats win by default when the Falcons chicken out and don't show up!

"Da Pats!"

In which case I predict the winner of tonight's Super Bowl will be the Falcon.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I have to say I was VERY underwhelmed by Lady Ga Ga.

I never knew what a total rip off she was of Madonna.

With all the painfully obvious (And necessary.) lip-synch bs why not just do a Cirque show or something like that?

The biggest night in music? Hardly.

Didn't sound like lip syncing to me. I enjoyed the show.

Let me start by saying I assumed she was lip-syncing but then I am a cynical sob. And I did not listen closely to her performance.

I'm not a fan of Lady Gaga's (not that I dislike her either), but I've read that she is against lip-syncing. Not that she criticizes others who do it, but she says she does not feel it is right for her. Looking at some social media this evening, opinion seems to be that she did NOT lip-sync.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Music/comments/......syncing/

Some quotes:

"I've always known how hard it is to sing properly when doing a lot of strenuous movements, so I was nearly positive that Gaga was lip-syncing in the first half of the performance. Then I saw her take the piano and gasp for breath and sing in the exact same tone and pitch as before and I was blown away that she was actually live singing the whole time. That was an amazing performance!"

"And I ... [sing] competitively as well. For me I knew it wasn't lip synced by all the slight note imperfections here and there, the breaths, and her at one point coming in a slight bit early rushing a beat. Of course I didn't give a *** about any of those--they just made the whole thing feel more authentic."
Make America Great Again! - Trump in 2020 ... "We're a capitalistic society. I go into business, I don't make it, I go bankrupt. They're not going to bail me out. I've been on welfare and food stamps. Did anyone help me? No." - Craig T. Nelson, actor.

Apparently Lady Gaga disagrees with you.

Looks like POTUS is as good at sports predictions as well as predicting presidential elections. Smile
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Yeah, score another one for POTUS!

About Lady Gaga: I only watched parts of it, but the vocal wasn't perfect ... so that leads me to believe she was really singing.

About the game: Now THAT'S a come-back! Amazing!
