NBA All Star Game Wrap-Up


I didn't think anything could be more gay and boring than an NBA All Star Game, until I saw the halftime show featuring a listless Shakira and a motley version of Alicia Keys.

It looks to me like Shakira's management team was so focused on creating a "BIG" show on a big stage for her, they forgot that the power of her performance is summed up in the, perhaps, 24-inch sway of her hips.

She was tied in the barb-wire of hitting her marks throughout, and she flailed there, losing more and more energy as the performance went on. You know it's bad when the marching band drummers who came out and accompanied her for about a minute, were actually an uplift for the performance.

And, what can I say about Alicia Keys. She's great, in her own way, but that performance was downright somnambulistic.

Whoever produced the NBA All Star game should be taken out and shot. "Who won?" you ask. We all lost.

I have to agree that Shakira and Alicia Keys didn't put on the best performance, but...

Wasn't that better than the Superbowl Halftime show?!

Good God, how about a rule, NO MORE GERIATRIC ACTS, PLEASE!

The NFL needs to at least take a lesson from the NBA here.

There should be a law, no one over 50 should be playing these shows.

I don't have anything fundamentally against The Who. Well, aside from, being old and no longer relevant, oh, and have a pedophile playing guitar. But their fans should be plenty happy to listen to them on the oldies station and on their 8-tracks. The rest of us, and even the younger generation of sports fans should never be subjected to these geezers.

At least Shakira and Keys have been relevant it the last quarter century.

Yes, this was better than the Super Bowl halftime show. You are right.

I think what was astounding to me was that two truly talented performers had been rendered so boring. And, I suspect it was all their managers fault.
