The Who Super Bowl Halftime Show Foreshadows New Orleans Win

The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey, lead guitarist Peter Townsend and the rest of the band rocked the Super Bowl XLIV halftime show, an apt foreshadowing of the Saints victory over the Colts. Considering the New Orleans Saints ‘motto’ of the night was Who Dat? – what other band besides The Who could have been more apropos?

The New Orleans Saints slammed to a win in Super Bowl XLIV after a rousing comeback in the second half of the game. Despite being 10 down, the Saints blew the Colts out of the water to take the team’s first Super Bowl win. We thought it was kind of a karmic foreshadowing with The Who was announced as the lead halftime performers. Who Dat? The Who that’s who!

As always, we’re always curious how the halftime entertainment will come off, especially since that whole Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake fiasco a while back. This year we needed no ‘nip slip’ to spice up the halftime show. The Who rocked it out hard, despite the fact that half the band looked like a bunch of nursing home escapees crashing the Super Bowl stage with stolen guitars.

Check out some of the fabulous video of The Who at the Super Bowl halftime show below. And congrats to the Saints for a blow-out victory. New Orleans is partying hard tonight!
