High Noon: Madonna At Halftime

Madonna's half-time performance at the Super Bowl was, by all accounts, a success. But it still generated a controversial moment — an extended middle finger from British singer M.I.A. The NFL and NBC wasted little time in apologizing. “The obscene gesture in the performance was completely inappropriate, very disappointing and we apologize to our fans,” said Brian McCarthy, spokesman for the NFL, which produced Madonna's halftime show/Fox News Latino.

Behaving Inmates To Watch SBXLVI

Inmates at Kootenai County Jail have been on their best behavior in order to keep their television privileges to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday. Last week, KREM 2 crews discovered the inmates at the jail were on their best behavior so they could watch the Super Bowl this year.  When KREM 2’s Cole Heath checked in with inmates Friday, they remained on their best behavior. It won’t be a typical football watch party, but the inmates say they are ready for the big game. Inmates say the televisions are turned off if anyone misbehaves, and they say that has happened in the past/KREM. More here.
