Let me preface the article by saying; I love The Who. The very first album I ever owned was a cassette tape of "Tommy". I've been listening to their music since I was tiny, and I hope to still be listening to it when I am ancient. When I heard that The Who would be playing at the Super Bowl 2010 half-time show, my excitement for this game ramped up several notches.

So how was the actual show? Pretty good, but not great. They opened with "Pinball Wizard", which was great, and the set list was a pretty predictable roster of their greatest hits. I guess "The Acid Queen" was too much to hope for.

Unfortunately, it is now impossible to ignore the fact that The Who have gotten old. The instrumentals are still great, but their voices can't reach the same notes they once did. I was entertained, but left whimsically sad over my aging heroes.

Did you love, hate, or feel nothing but ambivalence towards the half-time show? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
