NFL Playoff Schedule 2011: Packers Vs. Bears, Jets Vs. Steelers For Black Eyed Peas Tickets

New, 2 comments

So it's come down to this: Tomorrow we'll see who out of the remaining teams on the 2011 NFL Playoff schedule are the biggest fans of Super Bowl halftime performers and noted intellectuals The Black Eyed Peas. At 2:00 central, on FOX, the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears will follow an look-alike contest with a heated NFC Championship game; in the AFC Championship game the New York Jets, who miss the socially aware hip-hop of 2009's The E.N.D., will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers, who prefer the Bacchanalian electro of two-thousand-and-late's The Beginning. Things will get started there at 5:30 on CBS.


To everyone who complained when the Super Bowl halftime show kept filling up with aging rock stars: The Black Eyed Peas are your fault. To be honest, I would rather hear Paul McCartney play "Jet" every year until he's dead than have to listen to "Boom Boom Pow" (lyrics: "Boom Boom Pow") just this one time. Janet Jackson did us a favor, lo those many years ago—before she inadvertently started the classic rock trend the Super Bowl had featured the likes of Shania Twain, 'N Sync, Britney Spears, and Phil Collins, who to be honest seems like he's on the wrong side of the Janet Jackson incident, now that I think about it.


Since then: Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty (mulligan), Bruce Springsteen, The Who... and the Black Eyed Peas, who will also be playing at the 3008 Super Bowl, right after Prince.
