Glory Days?

I have one more thought before I return to the Open Letters to Con Artists series tomorrow.

During the opening of the halftime show, legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen urged viewers to "
step back from the guacamole" and "put your chicken fingers down" and turn the TV "all the way up..."

A few minutes later he underestimated the slickness of the stage when he did his trademark slide and wound up plowing into the camera (at about 3:43 in the video below) .

I'm guessing that anyone who hadn't stepped back from the guacamole or put the chicken fingers down by then, immediately did so at the sight of the 57 year-old man's crotch filling their television screens.
