The Super Bowl is Hit or Miss


Maddie Gill, Managing Editor

The Super Bowl is just around the corner, and although I am totally not a football fan, I have always enjoyed the live entertainment during halftime and the commercials. In past years, there have been iconic performances by Justin Timberlake (although it resulted in a scandal), Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, and the like. But the NFL never fails to throw in an oddball performer that is bound to disappoint. No offense, but Maroon 5 struggles to put on a good show on their own tours, how could they possibly appeal to such a large audience on national television? For the first time in a while, we are guaranteed a good show – this year from Rihanna. In terms of commercials, most years they’re funny, some years not so much. Considering how much time and money companies put into these time slots on TV, one would expect the best writers and celebrity cameos. However, some are just downright corny. There’s a full list you can find on the Internet ranking commercials from best to worst, but even that’s debatable. At the end of the day, the event is about the game, but I’m hoping things don’t get too political this year and Rihanna makes good use of her comeback era
