TAMPA, Fla. — Maybe you want to make a reach that Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner and rock star Bruce Springsteen are kindred spirits, guys who have made it big in life but given back a lot to others who need it.

OK. But Warner couldn’t name a line from a Springsteen song if you spotted him a “Tramps like us …”

“I’m not really a music fan much at all,” Warner said Thursday morning, six hours before Springsteen and his E Street Band were to hold a press conference of their own here to tout their halftime show in Sunday’s Super Bowl.

“It’s not a knock on the Boss,” Warner said, at least knowing Springsteen’s nickname. “Bruce Springsteen and the band, they do a tremendous job. I’m just not a huge music fan. So I don’t listen to a lot of music. I don’t know a lot of songs.

“I know the name, and it’s kind of cool to have him performing at the Super Bowl, but I just don’t know a lot about his music.”

Whether Springsteen knows anything about Warner, we’ll find out this afternoon.
