The 13th Annual (More Or Less) Beachwood Super Bowl Halftime Show Prop Bet: Mr. Weeknd?

It's been a long, ugly, terrible year since I last pretended to care about the Super Bowl half-time show and somewhere in that miserable slog either the NFL or I or possibly both of us gave up. I can understand why the organizers would want to avoid the kind of big, loud spectacle we've seen in prior years. J-Lo's not going to mount a stripper poll in a half-empty stadium, after all. But with all due respect to Mr. The Weeknd, this feels like the half-time show equivalent of sweatpants on a Zoom call - no one's gonna see it, so who gives a fuck?

Anyway, I've never consciously listened to an entire Weeknd song and I'm not about to start. So I'm turning this over to the nearest 5th-grader. Take it away, Tiki:

"Okay, so, he's going to play 'Blinding Light,' 'Save Your Tears,' umm . . . 'The Hills' . . . and I guess 'Starboy,' and I think he's going to wear either a red or a black suit. He curses a lot in a lot of his songs so, like, I don't think he can play that many of them or he'll get in trouble."
