Last night, one of the least anticipated Super Bowl’s took place in Dallas. At least it was one of the least anticipated in the eyes of FHM. Why? Well, when a game is so sodding stop-start, the one thing that keeps us nice and entertained during the five minute breaks between play is the cheerleaders. But this year, there were no cheerleaders.
Now, to us, no cheerleaders at the Super Bowl is like Sooty without Sweep. We’re not sure how our American friends feel about this, because they actually care about the result of the game, but we weren’t happy. So we pinned our hopes on either Christina Aguilera or Fergie having a Janet Jackson-esque wardrobe malfunction. It didn’t happen.
What did happen though, was that Christina completely ruined the Super Bowl. She had to sing the national anthem before the game, and she got it WRONG! How could you Christina?
Look at that face, she knew what she was doing...
Basically, a line that goes “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming” came out as “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming”. Hardly blasphemy, but the Yanks didn’t like it. Twitter went mental, and it had all gone Pete Tong before the game had even kicked off.
Only Twitter in the States lit up though, we didn’t have a clue anything was wrong on these shores. We were still trending #novoteynovitty for crying out loud. We think the Americans need to get a sense of perspective here, because there is a much more pressing issue for them to deal with instead of moaning about some words being wrong: Why were there no bloody cheerleaders?! Jeez.
