On the heels of entertaining (or at least competent) halftime performances by Prince and Tom Petty, the NFL has reportedly lined up Bruce Springsteen to play the intermission at Super Bowl XLIII next February.

Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1 in Tampa will feature Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, sources said. "He was just confirmed," a spy added. "Little Stevie (Van Zandt) has already rented out the Hard Rock Café for a party." A Boss rep didn't return calls or e-mails.

Oh man.  I hope they realize what they've done.  Halftime's gonna last three hours now.  And that's before he plays five encores. 

Seriously though, I hope this is true.  Before Petty was announced last year the big rumor was that the Eagles would play.  I don't care how you feel about "Born in the U.S.A.", at least part of it is about Marines dying at Khe Sanh.  I'll take that over fucking "Witchy Woman" eight days a week.
