Tonight, Eli Manning will be hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time. And shockingly, I will be watching.
Eli Manning has crushed my dreams not once, but twice. For this I can never forgive him. So why am I watching him on SNL, you ask? For the same reason that I could not bring myself to purchase this shirt:
Because I love Peyton Manning. Granted, not in the “I love Tom Brady” sort of way. But because he is one of the classiest guys in sports, honest & hard working, and flat out HILARIOUS. His episode of SNL is probably one of my favorites. See the proof:
Out of respect for Peyton, I could not buy the shirt. And out of respect for Peyton, I am watching Eli on SNL. If Eli is half as funny as his big brother, he will be worth watching. (I assume he must be at least a little funny, otherwise why else would he have all those commercials? They can’t all be because of Peyton.) If he is REALLY funny, he may even drop a few spots on the Enemies List.
Have a good weekend, and whatever you do, I hope you get some laughs in too.
