Finally, remember fondly that Tom Petty played the halftime of Super Bowl XLII, when the Giants did the world a favour & beat the 18-0 Patriots. Most halftime shows are a greatest hits medley, but this one was the stuff he wanted to play during the one time he’d ever do this. It made the show a little more memorable.

Almost went and saw him a couple months ago but I fucking hate stadium show. He’s the only big name I’d maybe be willing to deal with that shit for, and my exact reason was that I need to catch him before he retires or dies. Really brought me down when I flipped on his Buried Treasure channel a few minutes ago and heard his voice.

That just made me realize that whenever I rented a car for a long distance trip I would get the Sirius just to listen to his channel. Well those are all recorded and I’ll do it again next time.
