Truth to Power

Who Dat and The Who

Congrats to the New Orleans Saints on their upset victory Sunday night in the Superbowl. We were in NOLA last year and saw how the city loved their team, so it was good to see some positive stories come out of that abused city. But more on that tomorrow.

Speaking of abuse, prior to the big game, some headline seeking jackwads circulated warnings to parents that “in the interest of public safety” that Pete Townshend of The Who was going to “at large” in the Miami area but that he “is not expected to establish residency”. All this due to Townshend’s arrest on accessing child porn.

So Pete, wag that he is, turns up to play halftime looking like this:

“pete”

Remind you of anybody?

“moon”

The only abuse occurred near a vocal mic, Roger Daltery, looking every bit like his character as a chorus director on That 70s Show, couldn’t sing to save his life, even with backing tapes. But Pete made rude guitar noises, and really, that’s all you want out of The Who anyway.

WHO DAT!
