Super Bowl 48: Bruno Mars is closer to Earth than "30 seconds away"; and a fun opening safety

So, what to make of the Super Bowl Event on Fox Sunday night?  I dropped in on a “Front Page” restaurant in Arlington to catch some of it.  I thought it was odd to see a football score of 5-0. 
  
  
It seemed to take a long time to get the half-time show started, and I have to say that the “best” Super Bowl commercial was for Fox’s own “Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey with Neil deGrasse Tyson, to start March 9. 

The half-time show featured Bruno Mars and his companions, some of whom were heavily tattooed with hairless chests.  It seemed as though they were wearing tattooed-sleeves gift-wrapping (and embalming) their legs.  The entire stadium would light up with various rainbow colors and fireworks. These were not wardrobe malfunctions

There have been reports that these "Chili Peppers" did not really play their banjos and that the instrumental music was actually synced.
   
Mars concluded his presentation with “Just the way you are.”
