That while the half time show at the superbowl is being called "A Tribute To America" most of the bands playing aren't American? Seems wierd to me,
U2 - Irish
Paul McCartney - British
Barenaked Ladies - Canadian
Marc Anthony - while technically an American citizen, he's from Puerto Rico, which refuses to become a state, therefore I can't consider him an American performer
R. Kelly/Mary J Blige - the only American act
If they wanted to have "A Tribute To America", wouldn't have made more sense to have "All American" act, such as Springsteen or Bob Dylan or even newer bands that are actually from the country they are saluting? Maybe it's just me.

You're forgetting No Doubt.

And obviously you're not aware of what the true "Spirit of America" really is.

It's a melting pot.

And all of the artists have recording contracts with AMERICAN record labels. The idea that "foreign" acts can get record deals and have widespread success in our country is truly what the American ideal is about.

What an incredibly close minded thing to say. He may be FROM Peurto Rico, but I do believe he now lives in Miami.

And I suppose, barring the probablity that your parents are Naitive Americans, that you wouldn't be considered "American" by your own standards either, since it's a good bet your ancestors *didn't* come from this country either.

My point being, it doesn't matter WHERE you're born, if you live in this country, you're American. That's why we don't have a national language or anything. Because until recently, people of all nationalities were welcome in our country and could eventually become a citizen.

I definitly have to put my two cents in since i may be the only Puerto Rican in this board. First Marc Anthony was born in New York City from Puerto Rican parents, and as a Puerto Rican I'm freakin proud of carrying my United States passaport wherever I travel, we are not technically US Citzens, we ARE US citizens. As far as statehood and independence and all that it's too long to discuss, we do not refuse statehood in fact half of the island wants it, the thing is that the other half wants to stay as a commonwealth...so it's still a continuing issue over here.

Now apart from all this is the point Papercuts! made so well, that this Super Bowl party is about a celebration of unity and strength as a same country, having a good time, forgetting things for a while and just enjoying the game, and to stop people like you of thinking that way.

I'm just looking forward to what Mariah Carey may or may not wear for the Star Spangled Banner - and she better sing it straight up without any "artistic interpretation" - it what her career and image need right now

Artistic interpretation or not, she isn't great. The recent choices for singers of the National Anthem haven't been great at all.

Hey, just remember, when we start tossing the more worthless states out of the union, Florida will be the first to go. Old people, tourists, and the whole Election 2000 fiasco? You really have nothing to offer. Hell, we can get our swamp boats from Louisiana!

I don't believe that *any* singer can sing the National Anthem these days without putting their own signature "twist" on it. As far as Mariah goes, I doubt that she'd have any reservations about singing the entire Anthem in dog-whistle range.

When I was in junior high ("middle school", to my east-coast friends), I coulda sworn that "dog-hearing range" thing she does was really her just whistling that part of the song.

Having seen Mariah in concert and most of her videos, she has her mouth wide open when she hits those high notes - I don't know anyone who can whistle like that.

The last person I remember actually singing the National Anthem straight at a major sporting event (major meaning an event where the Anthem was televised, not that that makes it major, that's just how it goes) would have to be Kelsey Grammer. I remember that he did it on Letterman and apparently, Major League Baseball was so impressed, they had him do it again for the All Star Game (not sure on the year). It actually sounded like it should.

Not that I don't enjoy seeing Mariah on my tv, but I would have liked to have seen them get that NYFD guy who was at a lot of the events post 9/11. His voice was amazing, and big enough to fill the stadium at the Super Bowl.



There, I feel better now.

I just love how they seem to have the Barenaked Ladies as thier 'feature and center-piece' band...and they're Canadian! All of them are from the Toronto area.! I love it.
