Watching the NFL and NBC point fingers at one another today over the latest nationally televised obscenity is surreal. The half-time show (which I intentionally skipped) featured Madonna, for crying out loud! One could argue that most of her career has been obscene. Some of the acts joining pre-Lady-Gaga have names that I will not even repeat on this page. The NFL has demonstrated their willingness to bungee jump over the open sewer of pop culture for the sake of publicity in the past, and just like after the Janet Jackson episode in 2004, their forced indignation rings hollow.
