Super. Bowl.

It’s the biggest day in North American culture.

However, it was the worst Super Bowl in world history.

From the start it was clear one team couldn’t drive the length of the field. Then it was clear the other team couldn’t hold onto the ball. Then a mountain of penalties.

A preseason game.

At least there was Schadenfreude.

There also was halftime.

I miss the left shark.

There’s less contempt for Coldplay in the US than across the pond.

Political moments used to last fifteen minutes. Now they last fifteen seconds. Whatever the immediate value of Beyoncé’s performance, it will vanish when the next moment arises. Probably on twitter.
