So: thoughts on Coldplay’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl? I thought it was a bad decision to book them in the first place. Not that I find anything wrong with Coldplay; it’s just they don’t exactly scream “NFL football,” do they?
The Internet’s verdict is in and it’s not pretty. Here are some random tweets that went by in my feed.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation outdid themselves with Chris Martin. He’ll never forget that.

And is it just me or were the shows better in the past? I can’t tell. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga got good reviews for her national anthem.
