The Who is on first

I'm back, WatchDog Nation. Yes, I enjoyed my 11 days off. Thanks for asking.

A bunch of stuff happened while I was gone that seemed interesting at the time, but now I don't remember most of it.

I know the Giants, Jets, Knicks and Nets combined for zero victories during my hiatus.

The local hockey teams probably won some games, but I'm not sure.

My favorite story from my absence was broken by Syosset's own Jimmy Traina of SI.com.

Traina reported The Who will be the halftime act at Super Bowl XLIV, extending the most shocking active streak in sports:

For the sixth consecutive year in the post-Janet Jackson era, the Super Bowl halftime performer(s) will be older than me - in five of those cases by a decade or more.

This guarantees another year of the following question from my daughters as they watch the big show:

"Who are those old guys?"

The difference this time is that I will cleverly respond thusly: "Yes."
