Brad Paisley Skips End of Super Bowl to See “The Hobbit”

Brad Paisley only made it about halfway through the Super Bowl on Sunday (Feb. 3).

Then, he tells country radio station K102 in Minneapolis, “I turned it off. Once the power went out, I actually went to a movie. I was the only one there.”

What?

“I went to go see The Hobbit because I have wanted to see it and never have had three hours over the last couple of months. There is nothing geekier than skipping the Super Bowl and going to see The Hobbit.”

Brad found some geeky company, namely the guy who sold him popcorn.

He said, ‘Is that a Star Wars shirt, man?' He can see just like two letters on my shirt that is under my coat. I told him it was and he said, ‘Man, how geeky are we that I can tell it is a Star Wars shirt by just two letters?’”

Pretty geeky.
