For all the millions -- heck, tens of millions -- spent by advertisers to create and buy air time for their Super Bowl commercials
, the best ad of the night was a simple, in-house CBS ad with David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey. It was surprising, clever and funny, unlike about 80 percent of the highly touted main attractions.
And Prince? He put on the best Super Bowl halftime show ever. The Stones were boring; Paul McCartney almost made me long for Up with People
. (Almost.) But Prince sang the hell out of his 15 minutes and showed everyone that he can still play guitar. (His guitar-playing skills have been all too overlooked in the past few years.) Hey, NFL -- sign up the Purple One every year!
