Bruce and the E-Street band didn’t disappoint at the much anticipated halftime show. Bruce opened his 12 minute performance to a very energized crowd in Tampa, Florida with “10th Avenue Freezeout” which led right into his classic “Born to Run”. He then performed a brief segment of “Working on a Dream” ,the title track of his just-released album. Springsteen and the band closed with “Glory Days”. The 59-year old Bruce looked like he could have played all night but was restricted by time constraints.
“I think it’s quittin’ time, Steve,” Springsteen laughed to guitarist Steve Van Zandt.
Steve argued a bit, but then a referee came out and jokingly flagged the band for delay-of-game penalty.
“Steve what time is it?” Bruce asked.
“It’s Boss time!” Van Zandt shouted.
This year has been Boss time. He won the Best Original Song Golden Globe for “The Wrestler”. He gave a stirring performance of his 9/11 tribute “The Rising” on the National Mall for Barack Obama’s inauguration. This week he released a new album “Working On A Dream”.
And tonight, in front of millions he rocked the house at the Super Bowl XLIII. He didn’t sing “I’m On Fire”, but he definitely is.

I am going to be completely honest – the only reason I am writing this story is because I saw Jamie Foxx at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and got the most AWESOME photos of him. I am just looking for an excuse to post the photos.
Jamie Foxx thinks he knows the dog the Obamas should welcome to the White House — a pitbull.
The Associated Press reports Jamie is searching for Barack and family,
“[I’m] trying to pick out Barack Obama’s Christmas puppy right now… I think I’m going to get him a pitbull, we just got to keep it street.”
Foxx also said he plans on being at Obama’s inauguration on Jan. 20 in Washington, D.C.
What kind of dog would you like to see the first family get??
Barbara Walter’s hosted the 16th edition of The 10 Most Fascinating People. I was not surprised when she announced that the Most Fascinating Person for 2008 was President Elect, Barack Obama. I don’t believe there could have been ANY competition for this one. Who else was more fascinating than Barack??
Here is the list of the other 9 fascinating people for 2008.
So what do you think – is there anyone that she missed?? Who fascinates you??
