    It's all about cross-promotion. ABC did it with Jimmy Kimmel.

    They'll use it as an opportunity to push American Idol even more and they're hoping the "Ryan appeal" will bring in little girls and AI fans.

    Lucky for me I won't have to watch any of that garbage as I'll be too busy working.

    Are the NFL and Fox really trying to outdue the last Super Bowl Halftime Suckfest: Cirque du Soleil?

    When will they put a rock band on the card or something that doesn't make people everywhere want to vomit?

    Eh, if it's only for the Super Bowl, I won't care. I'll be too busy working.

    If it were Clay Aiken as the halftime show, it could end up being as big a fiasco as Ashlee Simpson at the Orange Bowl.

    You couldn't get back together again Springsteen and the E Street Band? That would be something.

    It's disgusting. I was already disgusted by the action from the NBA Finals but was sickened when they decided to cover Eva and Tony's upcoming wedding duringthe halftime show.

    Seriously....what the hell is going on?

    The sports and entertainment worlds are colliding. Stuff like "Who's now" is another example of it. Most networks that show sports, but especially ESPN/ABC and Fox are pushing off the field as much as on the field to try and attract more casual viewers.

    There are those, myself included, who would like analysis of the first half and a preview of the second half, but the Super Bowl has already crossed over into mainstream popular culture, and the NBA, with ABC and ESPN, is trying to do the same thing with the All-Star weekend and NBA Finals. Why do you think the NBA now has halftime shows at all of these things?

    I'm waiting for the Seventh-Inning Stretch Show at the MLB All-Star Game. That should be wonderful.

    I'm sickened by the union of pop culture and sports. As a man, where is my refuge from the insights of Paris Hilton or what Lindsay Lohan is doing?

    It's disgusting....
