The Vegas odds of Bruce Springsteen playing "Born In The USA" during his Superbowl half-time performance were 2-1. It was also tabbed as the most popular choice by bookies to either start or close his set, but the Boss would not have it. Since the budget for the Superbowl is usually pretty modest, we knew bringing Courtney Cox on stage for a reunion was a long-shot, but we thought for sure it would be the high-point of the night. The Boss wasn't having it.
Turns out the Boss was more interested in hawking his new wares and sliding his crotch into cameras. So we decided with this week's installment of Flashback vids, we'd go back to a simpler time. When a fresh faced Courtney Cox (and fresh faced Bruce Springsteen too, check out how young he looks) just happened to be upfront and center at an E Street Band concert, making videographic history. Oh, and Superbowl half-time producers, you missed the boat on this one.
