    Bruce Springsteen brought the house down during the Super Bowl halftime show, but he also nearly brought down a cameraman.

    Singing a medley of sorts for all of 12 minutes, "The Boss" took to the stage in a back-to-back silhouette with sax-player Clarence Clemons.

    He seemed to share the mic with the audience as often as he used it himself.

    There was a hiccup or two along the way. One involving pitch. The other happened when Springsteen did a knee slide across the stage and crashed into a camera.

    If you TiVo the moment in slow motion you can see the camera operator's gloved hand try to keep Springsteen from falling forward.  The Boss looked a little stunned and amused at the slip up and then ran back to center stage for his next song.

    Check out the clip slow-mo and all. And oh ya, he starts his latest tour April 1 in San Jose -- no fooling.
