Honestly, it's the superbowl. A cesspit of testosterone that's aired on national cable television. What were you guys expecting? A family friendly Sesame Street parade?

Our kids have seen much MUCH worse in their daily television ventures.

I honestly didn't see what people had a problem with.

That would be cool!

They need to get the two teams' cheerleading squads; LET THEM DO A CHEER OFF. Have the public do a phone in of which one was the best, and it's settled.

Hey, I'm not saying it was the worst thing ever...but I think it was, like the majority of stuff on tv, too much.

I saw MUCH, MUCH, MUCH worse on a Carl's Junior commercial today. (Is that what's is called? It's Hardees here.) It was horrible!

Here is an example of how Beyonce has been inspired by dancers of specific cultures. It is not the first time. I never said anyone was an idiot, is that what you think of yourself?

The words would have needed to completely change though.

Most were very composed about it except for the cheerleading team's Beyoncé equivalent. Regardless of whether the team was starting to do their little foot movements and pom pom shaking, "Beyoncé" would start her thrusting and grinding and nasty dance to the music. She just looked like a cheap hussy. It was shameful. No wonder the band played that song so much!

She wasn't up there on a stripper pole, she's a trained dancer. And as much as I don't like her, I can give credit where credit is due.
Really, what culture is that, HeartDrama?

I didn't realize that little blonde southern belles were encouraged to thrust and grind on the sidelines as a cultural thing.
