He's just a troll, Train; all that they can be./ I'magine being he, squint hard, can't you see?/ What else he got to live for? you tell me!/ Pity be the fool, to misquote Mr. T./ Squalid little life, ashamed he should be.

As sad and unfortunate as this is, this is a sports website and keep it that way. Will there be an article every time someone who sings this for the Super Bowl dies? I'm not hating on Whitney, just making this front page news on this site.

Really sportsline? Now we are posting stories about singers that die and calling them Super Bowl stars??

Pretty sad deal.  What a great artist.  She made millions in her career, but just couldn't kick the cocaine habit.

To all you negative bloggers...
Did you have to practice being dicks or were you just born that way?

Superbowl star????


Hey, anybody remember the time she dove in from the one as time expired on the Frozen Tundra?
Or the time, she came off the bench to fill in for Bob Griese and lead her team to the Superbowl?
The time she caught the immaculate reception?
Her 4 TD passes in one Superbowl?
When she tackled the Titans Kevin Dyson at the 1 yard line as time ran out?
Or of course when she caught that incredible over the head catch to seal the Patriots loss and end their perfect season?
Anybody see her throw that INCREDIBLE pass down the sideline to Mario Manningham who was double covered a couple of weeks ago?




Super Performer. Absolutely.
SuperBowl Performer. Obsiously. 

Superbowl star? That is the most rediculous thing I have ever heard!

They sneak into the headline the fact that she one time sang 1 song at the Super Bowl and it becomes a sports story??

Too bad they forgot to mention that she was lip-syncing during her Super Bowl XXV performance.. Kinda cheapens that whole "one of her greatest moments" line in the brief. The performance was prerecorded and mixed and remixed until it was perfect.

This is NOT a sports story. Just another example of this site reaching for something that isn't there. Here's a hint: talk sports. Whitney Houston has absolutely nothing to do with sports related issues.
