Eli Manning Gives a Kid a Swirly on SNL
I respect any athlete bold enough to stand in the blazing hot spotlight of the Saturday Night Live stage. I don’t care how big a personality these guys have, none of them are comedians. Delivering a game-winning touchdown toss is hard, but delivering a funny line on a live television show is a completely different animal. Was Eli Manning’s hosting appearance this past weekend particularly memorable? No. However, it wasn’t altogether forgettable either. I am not a member of the Eli fan club, but he made me laugh lampooning big bro Peyton’s famous United Way parody. Swirlies, super-wedgies and F-bombs, oh my!
