Big bangBangs.

I can’t live without them. There’s something about keeping my forehead obscured that works for me and my style. And I am not alone. An article in Cosmopolitan takes a look at bangs that go waaaaaaaaaayyyyy back. Here’s a link.

Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth, Natalie Wood. Before you think you are only seeing dead people, Taylor Swift, Madonna and Halle Berry are on the list, as well.

An article in our March issue of Lake Erie LifeStyle about 98-year-old baseball fan Betty Peebles prompted a local fan to recall that our regiona had its own women’s baseball league much like the movie A League of Their Own. That memorable 1992 movie discussed the real All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, which is documented at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.

Hundreds of women played baseball while men were away at war. The league included 92 teams from 1943 to 1954, according to Wikipedia.

The movie starred Geena DavisTom HanksMadonna and Rosie O’DonnellPenny Marshall directed. So far, we are researching the idea, but striking out. If you have any information, please e-mail me at pam.parker@timesnews.com.

I watched just about every minute of the Super Bowl and what a game! The halftime show, featuring Madonna, was a big show, as Ed Sullivan would say. And it did not go off without controversy. Too bad, too. It was a good one.
If you haven’t heard by now, M.I.A., a British singer, apparently felt the need to flip the bird to the camera during “Give me all your luvin.”
The NFL and NBC released a quick apology, but it did mar an otherwise rocking performance by the Material Girl. “Vogue” was particularly good as was “Music” and the finale where Singer Cee Lo nearly stole the show in his duet with Madonna as they and a gazillion singers/dancers in choir robes performed “Like a Prayer.”
LMFAO and Nicki Minaj were also part of the show along with Roman warriors and marching bands. Facebook and Twitter lit up with comments that Madonna lip-synced, but I figured everyone did that.
Madonna looked great, but the thigh-high boots and Prince Valiant costume appeared to hamper her movements. I wish the 53-year-old had worn something else. In all, it was entertainment. The commercials were good fun. Fiat, M&M, Clint Eastwood’s Chrysler ad and those Doritos ads were among my faves.
Another Super Bowl is history. Next up, it’s Super Bowl L. And the oddmakers are already picking the Patriots as favorites to win. I wonder who they’ll bet on for half-time.
