Have I Mentioned How Much I Love The Mannings?

Every day we read about the shenanigans that certain sports stars are up to. These days, there’s a new Johnny Manziel headline everyday, and a new Riley Cooper apology on the off days. Where’s the fun, I ask? WHERE IS THE FUN?!

You don’t have to look very far for relief. Eli and Peyton Manning have our backs. Obviously inspired by the success of Justin Timberlake’s digital shorts for SNL, the lovable brothers have teamed with DirecTV to give us a music video full of hilarity!

I’ve long been a fan of the Manning Brothers; especially Peyton. (Yea, I first blogged about him waaaaay back in 2008. That’s love!) Those guys are so humble and don’t take themselves too seriously, which is a trait I really appreciate in high profile entertainers.

So, without further ado, I give you “Football On Your Phone!” Watch below:

The Peyton/Tiger Show Returned Yesterday

It’s no secret that I love me some Peyton Manning. I really do. I just can’t help it. The whole “aww shucks” thing just endears him to me. While I love his more recent Mastercard Commercial (I’ve even blogged about it), I have to say that my all-time favorite ad is the infamous CUT THAT MEAT! bit. Ask anyone in my family, and they’ll tell you that, from time to time, I will bust out a “Cut that meat!” of my own; and for no apparent reason. Such is my love for Peyton.

Tiger + Peyton = Happy Suz

And then there’s Tiger Woods. I can’t stand golf. I don’t want to watch it, and I don’t want to play it. I can think of few sports I like less. That’s not true. I hate hockey and baseball more. I digress. The point is I don’t like the sport at all. But I love me some Tiger Woods. If I pay any attention to the sport, it’s only because of Tiger, and no one else. It’s like he possesses some extreme power that makes me pay attention to him when he plays. I can’t fight it, even though I want to.

So imagine my delight at learning that Peyton and Tiger are teamed up to play in the Quail Hollow Pro-Am yesterday! It’s like the sports gods decided that I’ve been a faithful devotee and made this happen just for meeee! I know they’ve played together before, and are friends, but this is the way I like to look at it. Don’t burst my big, fat, red, shiny balloon!

When they hit the course there were quite a few fans in attendance. No surprise. Those two are a couple of the biggest names in all of sports! And I was also pleased to learn that Peyton brought good friend, teammate, and former Buckeye Anthony Gonzalez with him as his personal caddy. Good stuff.

I didn’t get to watch it on TV, nor do I know if it was even televised. Let’s be honest, that’s pushing things a little too much for me. Simply knowing that two of my favorite athletes got together and competed today is enough for me. It’s like the planets aligned.

So, thank you, sports gods! Keep it comin’! I’ve been a very good girl this year!

I Freakin’ Love Peyton Manning

I see why advertisers fall all over themselves to get him to hock their products/service. Every time I see this commercial I LOL. And not just a chuckle, but I’m cracking up! At this point it’s not like I don’t know how the commercial is going to play out, but it still makes me laugh. Well done, Peyton. Well done.
