When Roger Daltrey blew through Chicago on his current solo tour, he said he was just trying to keep his pipes practiced for upcoming projects by The Who -- and one of those projects might be a Super Bowl XLIV halftime performance in January.

Internet rumors are hot today claiming that The Who will be the latest classic rock band (translation: safe booking in a post-Janet Jackson world) taking over the gridiron during the big pro football hootenanny.

Just rumors at this point, nothing confirmed -- except an unnamed source at Sports Illustrated. The official NFL statement, according to the NYPost, is, "When we have something to announce, we'll announce it."

They also note that since the game is on CBS, it certainly makes sense to book The Who. The band's songs are used as themes all three "CSI" franchises on the network: "Who Are You" ("CSI"), "Baba O'Riley" ("CSI: NY") and "Won't Get Fooled Again" ("CSI: Miami").

Recent Super Bowl halftime performers have been Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, the Rolling Stones, U2, Paul McCartney and Prince.

The Who would be a cool halftime choice.....for Super Bowl V. Go Unitas.

The Who are legends, and seem more like normal people than twitty McCartney, Monster Ego Stones, Prince of whatever.

If the point is halftime entertainment, I hope they will give the Sex Pistols a opportunity sometime.
