The Super Bowl halftime show wasn’t reserved just for the fans. Even Bengals kicker Evan McPherson stuck around to catch some of the performance.

The Super Bowl halftime show promised to bring back some of the biggest performers of their day from Dr. Dre and Mary J. Blige to Eminem.

It was such an exciting prospect that a player actually delayed going into the locker room for a chance to watch it all unfold.

That player was Bengals kicker Evan McPherson, who was pictured milling around the Bengals bench. He was joined by long snapper Clark Harris.

Tedy Bruschi admitted he’d have thought about doing it too.


It pays to be a special teams player in the NFL apparently. While the linemen, receivers, and defensive backs went back into the locker room to rest and reset for the second half, the kicker and long snapper got to take in one of the better Super Bowl halftime shows in memory.

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and the rest absolutely slayed it. McPherson and Harris are going to have to tell their teammates what they missed.

McPherson is only 22, so some of that music was just slightly before his time, but he clearly got the epic promise of that group of performers getting together.

Harris, on the other hand, was born in 1984. He knows exactly what that show was all about. There’s no question he did the right thing.
