The Super Bowl itself was super boring*, but at least we got a break from the ass whooping the Seahawks laid down on the Broncos for a couple of minutes to watch Bruno Mars rock MetLife Stadium. Mars and his band lit up the stage, literally and performed his hits “Locked Out Of Heaven,” “Treasure” and “Runaway Baby.” The later provided a nice transition into “Give It Away” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Anthony Kiedis and Flea braved the 40 degree weather to perform shirtless, but all excitement and jumping around probably kept them warm. Bruno ended the performance with a touching rendition of “Just The Way You Are” that also paid tribute to our men and women in uniform. I know people weren’t sure he could pull it off, but I think Mars and his band did an excellent job, in custom Saint Laurent suits no less.
[Ed. Note: It should be noted that DivaJulia, a proud resident of Seattle, did NOT think the game was “boring”. 12th Man, yo. NOW can we get some respect up in this city??]
