Monday February 6, 2006 Superbowl: It wasn’t a bad Superbowl, as these things go. But I’ve got to say – that was the absolute worst rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” I have ever heard. I’d rather hear a pop starlet just sing it normally than have more artistic types take the liberties those folks did. It was terrible! If you want to know about the actual game, you can read Doug’s comments. Review: LJ Smith, who blogs at “A …
