At halftime of the Thanksgiving trouncing of the Oakland Raiders by the Dallas Cowboys came word of another halftime – specifically, confirmation of the featured rock act at the 2010 Super Bowl halftime: The Who.

The veteran British band, with founding members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, will be the latest in a string of warhorse marquee names to be paraded as part of the NFL championship game following the fallout caused by the Justin Timberlake/Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction” of 2004. Funny how a split second flash of flesh is deemed controversial but once-hardline rock acts like The Who, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and even Bruce Springsteen are now deemed family entertainment.

The latter pack, though, are all part of a rock history that made reputations out of decades of serious songcraft and musicianship, not cheap, exploitative dance routines like the one that made Justin and Janet appear more clownish than offensive.

But Townshend and Daltrey will have a tough Super Bowl act to follow in Springtseen, who delivered the goods with good humor and tireless rock ‘n’ roll zeal last winter.

Daltrey performed on his own up at the Horseshoe in Elizabeth, Indiana on Halloween night. While hardly the most prestigious of gigs, he still sounded commanding when singing Squeeze Box, I Can See for Miles, My Generation and Young Man’s Blues back-to-back. But taking on a medley of Johnny Cash tunes later in the show? Ooh, that hurt.

Townshend, one of rock’s champion sourpusses, can still make mirrors rattle and crack with his guitarwork, but his compositions are what continue to define and validate The Who as an artistic enterprise.

So moved, in fact, was Denver Broncos/Baltimore Ravens tight end-turned-CBS commentator Shannon Sharpe at the Who news that he broke into the Townshend Quadrophenia classic Love Reign O’er Me, much to the groans and chuckles of his broadcast mates.

The date for The Who on Super Bowl XLIV from Miami’s Dolphins Stadium will be Feb. 7, 2010. The game and the performance will be broadcast live on CBS, the network that just happens to use three Townshend songs as themes for its CSI programs. What a coincidence.
