Greatest Halftime Performance Ever...
Kudos to the NFL Network yesterday for reairing the 2002 Super Bowl halftime show in honor of 9/11. U2 was unbelievable that day (they are amazing most of the time but this was one of the all-time great clutch performances). I was as moved watching them sing "Where the Streets have no name" today as I was when they sang it during the super bowl with the names of the 9/11 victims scrolled behind them. It was such a horrible tragedy and they found a way to bring some comfort and take people's minds off it during that show. Bono was on fire and seemed to be singing for all of America. And him lifting his jacket and revealing the American flag lining was really touching and moving. Every show I have seen since then or will see in the future will be a letdown because there is no way you can top what U2 did that day. Just an awesome performance from one of the greatest bands ever.
