    Even though I did not watch it, I feel that the poll shows bias and favors one outcome.

    Made ribeyes during halftime. Sounds like I didn't miss much.

    Other than the dancers wearing masks that resembled jock straps, I thought is was a good show.

    I watched one of Martin Pauly's flying videos instead. It was a 10/10.

    Don’t know the performer and don’t care. That’s time I’ll never get back.

    I watched a YouTube lawyer while I ate the ribeye and salad. Probay more entertaining than the halftime show. Lol

    I just read an article that said he (the performer) spent $7 million of his own money on that show.

    (Insert pejorative here)

    Puppy Bowl was much better. Half-time show was the kittens.

    I don't pay a lot of attention to halftime shows. This one seemed less contrived than some of the huge productions of the past.

    In fairness, the sound engineering was horrible. It would have been an improvement if they turned the gain to zero.

    My wife and I had no idea who the "performers" were. That (what little of it I watched) was the worst half-time show I've seen. And we've seen all 55 Super Bowls.

    Lip-synced and auto-tuned, volume to zero would be best, tbh

    A colonoscopy would have been more enjoyable.

    Cleaned the snow off my driveway, apparently that was a great decision.

    I never even heard of The Weekend until this SB. I actually didn't watch halftime. Took a break.

    My wife turned to me and asked, "Are those jock straps on their heads?" :lol:

    I'd agree, I think I slept thru the halftime and most of the game. Nothing exciting enough to wake up.

    80s vibe and family friendly. I recognized 2 of his songs.

    Nothing that can't be fixed with a little Cruex face cream.

    People actually watch the show? I took the ample time (seem longer than normal) to do a few things. I didn’t watch the hours of preview shows either.

    When it came to the music, I thought it had an ELO sound and feel.

    To be fair, I haven’t seen all the other halftime shows, so I can’t say that was the worst ever. But I think a good marching band playing Sousa would have been more enjoyable.

    I remarked that it looked like a couple of dozen guys had escaped from the burn unit at the hospital.

    We didn't watch any of it. Not the half time show, not the game. My wife watched the opening round of the Australian Open; tennis. I watched a couple of episodes of Longmire.

    After the Packers lost she didn't care any more about it. I more like hanging out with friends at their Superbowl party than the game anyway. They didn't hold it this year due to COVID.

    I know nothing about sound engineering, but it did seem like something was screwed up. You couldn't hardly hear the singer (and while I know he's not everyone's cup of tea, he is a good singer). I saw The Weekend when he did Saturday Night Live awhile back, and it was a much more impressive show.
