Pittsburgh Steelers running back Willie Parker admitted on the Best Damn Sports Show Podcast that he'd never heard of Bruce Springsteen before his halftime performance.
Now, Parker is 28 years-old and The Boss isn't wildly popular with the members of the Playstation generation, but not knowing who he is just seems ridiculous.
BDSSP: Are you a big Springsteen fan?
Willie: Um... I never heard of him.
BDSSP: Hang on a second. You had never heard of Bruce Springsteen up until the game?
Willie: I haven't man. It's probably sad, but I haven't.
BDSSP: How about "Born In The USA"? Have you ever heard that song?
Willie: I heard that song, but I didn't know until recently he sang that. See, I had to do a little research.Fast Willie: Who's the Boss? (Hugging Harold Reynolds)
