Is Madonna Super Bowl bound?

Assuming SB Nation is correct in reporting Madonna will perform at halftime of the Super Bowl, the NFL is back to its old - and I do mean old - tricks in the post-Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction era.

For six consecutive years after Ms. Jackson's mishap, the league hired acts older than me. And I turned 51 Monday!

The shocking streak finally ended after The Who got a lot of grief for their ancient-ness in 2010, leading to the Black Eyed Peas turning up this past February at Cowboys Stadium.

Now this. Madonna! The only good news about all this is that every winter I get to give my kids a pop music history lesson when they ask about the old guys (or gals) on the stage.
