SPORTSbyBROOKS has an EXLCUSIVE! today in which they EXCLUSIVEly tell you that they have learned EXCLUSIVEly that the Eagles will perform during halftime at Super Bowl XLII this coming February.
An announcement was not imminent, but a source said the likelihood of a deal being struck between the band and the league is "90%". The NFL's initial choice as headline halftime performer was Garth Brooks, but negotiations with the country performer broke down.
I don't understand. I mean, I know the Eagles aren't going to play in the Super Bowl, but I don't see why they'd play the halftime show. Does Donovan McNabb sing or something? Whatever, at least it's not Garth Brooks. The NFL must be totally "desperado" for an act.
