I didn't watch the Super Bowl last night. Well, okay, I watched a little. But only because my friend Ricky gave me wings and chips and there was not much else to do as I waited for my cousin to get off of work so we could order pizza and continue catching up on season 1 of The Wire.
But what I did see of the Super Bowl, I liked. And what I saw was Jennifer Hudson singing our national anthem.
And then, this morning, my friend Paul sent out an email, quoted below:

I think I may have to give this to Whitney. Her voice is smoother, easier going down. But god damn did Missus Hudson do one helluva job as well. Then again, maybe some points come off from Whitney because of the racing checkers on her jacket. Did someone choose that outfit for her?
Hudson should have worn a headband, that might have been the clincher.
