City of Calgary's Justin Timberlake Super Bowl joke 'stinks'

Some people think that Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl half time show was ‘rotten’: Many Prince fans were irate that JT used an image of the Purple Rain megastar during his dance and song routine.

The game was played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis, MN., and so Timberlake paid homage to Prince, whose 2007 show is often credited as being one of the best half-time shows ever.

But Prince lovers were not having it.

 

Many Super Bowl viewers thought that it would have been more appropriate – and fun! – to bring back Janet Jackson, who was Timberlake’s co-conspirator in the 2004 Nippelgate debacle or, at least, his four ‘N Sync BFFs.

 

On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl, beating the New England Patriots 41-33.

The City of Calgary got in on the Super Bowl fun last night with a series of  Super Bowl themed waste and recycling tweets.

This tweet – like an Eagle – is a champion.

 

Maybe Jeff and I should have pulled out this joke at our 3rd annual Jeff and Sarah’s Big Ass Football Party at the Deerfoot Inn and Casino on Sunday. We packed the ballroom with 400 people and had giant TV screens, fun prizes such as Eagles tickets, and delicious beef on a bun for dinner.
