No More Oldies at Super Bowl Halftime Show, Fox Sports Promises

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 26th 2010 3:30PM
After last month's halftime performance by the Who, the Super Bowl has apparently run out of sixtysomething classic rockers suitable for the year's most watched musical showcase. Following a long stretch of such senior rockers as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and relative youngsters Prince and U2, next year's halftime act will be someone younger, twangier and female.

So says Fox Sports president David Hill. Asked by the Los Angeles Times if he could promise that next year's halftime act would be someone under 60, Hill said, "Oh, please God yes." He said that, while he's a fan of the Who, the aging rockers did neither themselves nor the game any favors with this year's performance on the CBS telecast.

White Sox' Ozzie Guillen joins Fox for World Series

Ozzie_Guillen_SoxThe World Series is just around the corner and Fox has done something to make the coverage a bit more interesting. No, they have dictated that the umpires be replaced with androids, although after the screw-ups from Game Four of the ALCS, that might not be a bad suggestion. Fox Sports has added White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen to the pre and post-game analysis.

Aside from being a World Series winner, Ozzie is a character. He's funny, audacious, occasionally inappropriate, but highly knowledgeable about baseball and entertaining. He won't hold back what he thinks and if you want to hear real inside baseball talk, that's what Ozzie will deliver.
