A dogsled, RCMP, snow and Shania Twain

Arriving on the snow-covered field on a dogsled, escorted by (RCMP) mounties, Shania Twain’s Grey Cup halftime show could not have been more Canadian.  The flying snow enhanced the performance, captured here by ESPN…


Dressed in sparkly pink and red winter wear, Canadian country singer Shania Twain wowed the crowd with her hit songs “That Don’t Impress me Much” and “Life’s About to Get Good”  before closing with “Man, I feel like a woman!”


Oh, and the football game was good too, a close nailbiter right to the end.  The underdog won again with the Toronto Argonauts defeating the Calgary Stampeders 27-24  in Grey Cup #105.

The halftime show featuring Cold Play, Bruno Mars and Beyonce was awesome.  Chris Martin’s bouncy, bent-over antics, Bruno Mars’ unique voice and dancing skills, with Beyonce’s legs and booty blended together for a spectacular show including a salute to Super bowl halftime performers of the past…
