Tom Brady is absolutely on fire.

He just led the Patriots on an eight-play, 79-yard scoring drive, going 5 for 5 passing, to give New England a 17-9 lead. That came after he hit on all 10 passes during the Patriots’ 96-yard touchdown drive right before halftime.

The Giants need to find their pass rush _ and fast.

We have an Ochocinco sighting at the Super Bowl.

After sitting out the AFC championship game against Baltimore, Chad Ochocinco opened the second half with his first catch, a 21-yard grab for New England. His first season with the Patriots was quiet with a career-low 15 catches, but he said he was living his dream by getting to football’s biggest game for the first time in his 11-year career.

Strike a pose!

Madonna rocked the Super Bowl halftime show with an elaborate performance that kicked off with her classic “Vogue.” She also danced her way out of a tumble when she slipped for a moment.

Whew.

LMFAO then joined her for a mashup of her more recent hit, “Music” and their No. 1 song, “Sexy and I Know It.” Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. danced onto the stage as cheerleaders, helping her through her new dance-pop song, “Give Me All Your Luvin’.”

Madonna closed it out _ with the help of Cee Lo Green _ with “Open Your Heart” and “Like A Prayer.” Looked pretty cool, actually.

No “Material Girl” or “Holiday,” but it sure beats the very first halftime show back in 1967 that featured college marching bands.

OK, now let’s get back to football.
