PRE-GAME PRIMER: LOI's Are In
***Doron Lamb, the Class of 2010 shooting guard (and no relation to Jeremy), is slated to make an official visit to UConn this weekend. He'll come on Sunday and leave Monday morning, missing the Huskies' 9 p.m. game with Colgate that night.
***The Huskies got an official visit earlier this week from Cleveland Melvin.
***Indulge me for a moment: The Who is my all-time favorite rock band, even ahead (barely) of The Beatles and Stones. When I heard the rumor (not yet confirmed) that they would be playing this year's Super Bowl halftime show, I was thrilled. Honestly, I never thought I'd see the day.
But now I'm wondering if it's a good idea. Is the target audience for the Super Bowl halftime show a Who crowd? Does the audience even know who The Who is? Maybe they're familiar with "Baba O'Riley" (Teenage Wasteland!) and "Won't Get Fooled Again" as the CSI theme songs. Maybe that's one of the reasons why The Who were asked (CSI and the Super Bowl, after all, are both on CBS).
But do young kids really dig The Who? Minorities? Those audiences may not be Stones, Springsteen or McCartney fans, either, but at least they likely know who those guys are. The Who? I don't think so.
Either way, let's hope we don't get another one of these type outbursts from Pete Townshend at the Super Bowl.
