Sticking with the theme of non-football related Super Bowl events for at least one more day, today, the event that has the best chance of getting more talk than the actual game come Monday morning. The halftime show. Last years version that looked like it came straight from the year 2999 was considered one of the worst ever. This year, Madonna gets her shot at leaving an everlasting impression, good or bad. Here are my top 10 performances of all time.
