09:32 AM ET 01.11 | California funk-rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers -- infamous for sometimes taking the stage with only tube socks covering their private parts -- is reportedly joining headline act Bruno Mars for the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show on Feb. 2 in chilly New Jersey. Mars invited the group to join him for the big game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford and is expected to announce their addition to the line-up this Saturday during TV coverage of the New Orleans Saints-Seattle Seahawks playoff match-up, an unidentified source told the Los Angeles Times.

Half time sucks and playing the game in NJ also sucks.

I like the Chili Peppers. Bruno Mars stinks, however.

That's a wardrobe malfunction I don't care to see. Then again at 10 degrees with blowing snow there probably not be much to see.

If the 49ers are in it and they play " Californication" while some hotties pole dance, then I might watch it. Otherwise, I will be in the garage at half time smoking a cigar.

Break out the weed whiskey and Warren Zevon. I think the Seahawks are about to write the ending to this season.

Not a bad idea.

It would work, but they have to keep the camera on the pole dancers. Or, have a drawing between the first and second quarter and the winner wins a lap dance on stage while the band plays " Get ON Top."

You have him confused with Justin Bieber.

The Chili Peppers playing on that frozen field, the cold reducing them to a wardrobe of ankle socks? About time they added some comedy to the halftime show.

Let it rain... er snow, waitress change please!

If one of those guys has a wardrobe " misfuntion" and some junk comes up, I am leaving the room....

This is great. The Chili Peppers can sing about their struggles with heroin and Mars provide an insipid counterpoint. The best of both - if you're from Bruno's home planet. I'd rather have Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan square dancing.
