    I NEVER drink Pepsi.

    Don't you know those idiots who turned the chance to perform at the half time show now wish they hadn't.

    What halftime show? We turned it to NatGeo. They have a show on watching paint dry.

    Hahaha the wife asked if I knew who the singer was and told her I thought he was an actor. I guess I should have painted a wall.

    It wasn’t the worst I’ve seen but Pepsi really... guess it says something about where my mind is at

    Huge missed opportunity not having Andre 3000 have a surprise appearance with Big Boi. That place would’ve erupted.

    Would’ve liked that a lot more than M5.

    I said something similar, hoping he’d come out with Big Boi and announce they’re bringing Outkast back

    Glad it wasn’t political. My wife liked it.

    Outkast ain't coming back; sadly.

    I think that’s why they picked Maroon 5, Just looking for a cash grab

    I read somewhere that Andre 3000 said he didn't want to do shortened snippets of their songs. Also read that several ATL-based performers told the NFL no over the whole Kapernick kneeling thing.

    If a restaurant serves Pepsi we don’t go or walk out.

    Always turn it off. There isn't one day that the music died. It happens every Super Bowl Sunday.

    Andre3000 is the only pop star I'd watch, but he's right. The way they try to do it is horrible. Instead of bad pop music, they should take the time to honor past SB MVP's, those players and coaches who have passed away, and NFL-related content. That should be enough to fill every season's halftime.

    It was garbage, like usual. Bring back Bruno Mars and Santana, they actually perform worth a dime.

    No they didn't regret it.they stood up for Keap and food for them.

    I didn't particularly care for the performance but that is just a generational thing. I was glad they left the politics out of it, for that I thank them.

    Adam Levine is an interesting cat. I will admit to enjoying his music - Moves Like Jagger reminds me of myself back in my single party days. I really thought I was the shiznit - and still do, actually. :blush:

    Speaking of Pepsi I think I did coke with you back at the Odyssey in 1985.

    Now I would have raised an eyebrow had you said 82'-83' . One of my main hangouts back then....

    I had read that musicians don't typically get paid for their half-time shows at the SB. I guess the exposure is worth more than money to them. Not sure of the accuracy of the material I read.

    Wait, for real? I’ve heard people say that and it blows my mind. As a former restaurant manager, I can tell you without question that Pepsi is a lot cheaper. When I made the decision to go with Pepsi over coke in my restaurants it was definitely not about which one I liked better, but about the bottom line. It was not even close.

    I just know tattoo parlors did a big business today. I got “Northern Georgia / Athens” tattooed across my stomach today. Lots of space there for it.

    Get after it Gresham bro!

    In all seriousness, I was pretty nervous when we got to that point in the show. With each new song played a article of clothing was removed. Seeing what pieces of clothing was left.... I was pumped he stopped after the last shirt was removed

    But you can charge what you want, right? I rarely order a soft drink with my food, so I don't know prices. So if one were to charge $1.75 for a Coke versus $1.25 for a Pepsi (would not have both on the menu), would anyone complain/notice? Please do not take this as criticism. Just curious. Some prices are not elastic as the economists would say.

    I didn’t take you negatively at all!

    Sure, you can charge whatever you want, but 50 cents in the restaurant industry (especially the quick service industry) is a big deal to a lot of people. $7.50 vs $8.00 makes all the difference in the world. Plus, selling drinks brings food cost down considerably because the margins are much higher on beverages than food.

    Coca-cola is much more likely to bring the prices down to major chains, but when you have only a few (I oversaw 2, then 3 restaurants) they don’t really come down on their prices. My same contacts through coca-cola were not able to give me the prices that gave me when I oversaw restaurants wiith a national name. Pepsi is much more willing to offer lower prices to the smaller operations. Though I would choose coca-cola over Pepsi personally, I certainly didn’t feel like I owed them extra money due to them being a southern company.

    I actually saw M5 at the Georgia Theater in Athens right when Songs About Jane came out. It was a fantastic show at the time. I'm not a huge fan of theirs these days... but I was hoping for a little bit better then that. I'm not going to pile on them though. It wasn't the worst I've seen, nor the best. I think the best one I can remember was U2's super bowl show. But it was the year of 9/11 so it was steeped in emotional content. So I could be biased from that.
