More Pity

I did a blog a while ago about feeling sorry for someone who really doesn’t need or deserve my pity (Dave Grohl). Now, I feel compelled to do another one. This time, I’m feeling sorry for Eli Manning. I know what you’re thinking: How can you feel sorry for Eli? His team just won the Super Bowl and he was just named as the Super Bowl MVP for the second time. He’s on top of the world right now.

The reason I feel sorry for Eli came to me as I watched him on Letterman Monday night. When the interview first started, it was all about the game and his team. Towards the end, the interview turned, as it always does, to questions about his brother Peyton. This annoyed me. I know that the fate of Peyton will be the biggest story of NFL’s offseason, but Eli and the Giants just won the Super Bowl. Couldn’t Dave leave Peyton out of it just once? Obviously not. Then I started thinking about all the pre-Super Bowl interviews that Eli did. Half of the questions he was asked were about Peyton’s health and his future with the Colts.

I know a little about this. twindaddy and I are only a year apart, so when we were younger, I usually had the same teachers he had the previous year. At the beginning of each year, I was bombarded with, “Aren’t you twindaddy’s brother?” We also spent some time working together at Hellmart. There were many times when I was called by his name by managers and fellow employees. Even after he had left, I was still getting called his name. It got to the point where I just went along with it, because I was tired of correcting people.

My experiences are nothing compared to what Eli has to endure, however. The more I think about it, the more I realize that no matter what Eli does for the rest of his career, he will still always be asked questions about Peyton. Eli could win every game, MVP award, and Super Bowl for the next 5 years, and he’ll still┬ábe asked questions about his older brother.

I know Eli will never say this, so I’ll say it for him: STOP ASKING ME QUESTIONS ABOUT MY BROTHER, YOU ASSHOLES!!

  2. If I were Eli I’d refuse to answer those questions.

    • Agreed. It’s crap that everyone has to ask about Peyton. I’d be sick of living in his shadow as well.

      Although I did see a comment by Charles Woodson that said something about how Peyton has won so many rings, but if Eli were to win this last Super Bowl (which of course he did) that he’d be in a league all his own with two rings. Really? I don’t think so. How many other QB’s have 2 or more rings?
