Musical prognostication

This Superbowl Sunday morning, better known as the Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time, as we were singing the second verse of the closing hymn at Mass, (these words, but the to the tune of Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee) I noticed that Hatchick, beside me, was stifling a giggle. That's when I realized that the line we had just sung was "God has made His saints victorious..."

Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints on a pretty amazing Super Bowl win!

A much sadder musical performance was that of The Who during halftime. I felt sad and sorry for them. There are musicians of that age who can still perform, but sadly, The Who are not among them. They simply reminded me of my own advancing age.

Agreed. I was even going to blog about its awfulness, but decided not to pile on. Me and my wife were cringing as these poor guys strangulated themselves trying to hit notes. On the YouTube, amid the comments about how great a performance this was (what is the aural equivalent of beer goggles?), there were a bunch of questions about why there were so many close ups on the drummer. It might be because that it is Ringo Starr's son.

Well, Dats, Dat!
I was hoping for When The Saints Go Marching In but we had the same recessional as you too.

They waited 44 years for this, and won Super Bowl 44.

"better known as the 5th Sunday in ordinary time"

AKA Sexagesma Sunday... I have embraced the 1962 calendar.

Tell Hat Chick I miss her little giggles that make us old folks think.
