Here’s some food for thought: Madonna’s first solo album debuted in 1983, roughly 29 years ago. In Back to the Future, Marty McFly went back in time from 1985 to 1955 — 30 years.
But, aside from this reminder of how old I am, Madonna’s performance was pretty tame.
This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We get right back up again and when we do the world is going to hear the roar of our engines. Yeah, it’s halftime in America. And our second half is about to begin.”
Like I said, politics aside: It makes me want to buy a Chrysler.
Last fun fact. In 1983 — again the year of Madonna’s debut album — the Super Bowl halftime show consisted of a drill-team from a Los Angeles High School. John Riggins of the ‘Fins was the MVP in a losing effort to the ‘Skins. Oh, and the A-Team made its debut following the game.
Man am I old.
