|PEYTON AND ELI MANNING TALK ABOUT SPORTS SEEMINGLY FOREVER (5 min)|
All they do in this 2006 video is talk about football, football, football on and on. Maybe I have a short attention span or maybe I JUST HATE SPORTS!
This video may seem short to sports lovers but I can't even watch it with the sound on. I have not watched it, really. I just "scrubbed through" the video on YouTube and confirmed that these two gorgeous jocks keep their handsome heads on-camera at all times.
Even five minutes of "football talk" and I am in the kitchen at the super bowl party talking to the straight guy's wives. And what do they tell me? "He's married to football and it's so boring." "He yells when I block the TV!" "It just be a metaphor for tribalism..."
Both these charismatic athletes look so gorgeous in 2006 I am willing to sit through football talk to promote them. It's a tough job.
