After winning his second Super Bowl ring, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has built up the cajones to finally accept Saturday Night Live's offer to be guest host.
Will he surpass expectations? Maybe. I can't imagine that there are many anticipating that this will go well for Eli so if you don't expect much, it won't take much to impress you.
In perhaps the craziest single day in NFL history, Tim Tebow was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, then wasn't, then was again. But for real the second time.
And that was only the second biggest story of the day.
Peyton Manning bidding farewell to the only team the 4 time NFL MVP has known.
Peyton Manning is no longer an Indianapolis Colt. Who ever those words would be stated prior to Manning's retirement? It will never seem natural to say them.
So many have weighed in on their thoughts on the unfortunate situation in Indianapolis. The realities of the sports business--emphasis on business--escape no one, not even living legends.

We wondered all week what Madonna would show the world during her Super Bowl halftime performance, and now we know.
The staging was bold and dramatic. She invoked images of ancient Rome. Madonna entered the stage on a chariot of sorts, surrounding by men in armor and gold shields.

Giant men pretending to be women. Hilarious.
Ah, the Super Bowl. The grand finale of the football season. It is almost upon us.
I get it, Ben. You have to find a way to hide the ugly. But I just don't think this hat is the way to do that. It's somehow just pointing out how unpleasant you are to look at in the first place.
This rarely happens, but I'm at a loss for words. If you're not a 75 year-old man heading to church on Sunday, why on Earth would you even think to wear this get up?
I blame Peyton Manning's neck injury and absence all season for skewing the balance of the NFL universe. Eli stole his mojo and is being hailed as--*shudder*--an elite quarterback. The Bengals have a winning record and may just make the playoffs, and the Eagles are 5-8. And the sporting universe is obsessed with a quarterback who can't throw a ball.
Chad Ochocinco, the former Bengals, now New England Patriots wide receiver, is having a tough year. His performance on the field has been abysmal, and he has faced stiff criticism regarding his active social media usage and celebrity from critics because of it. The argument is that he is not focusing enough attention to his new team (which really isn't that new anymore) and stepping up his performance.
The 2011 NFL season is showing us just how much the Indianapolis Colts need Peyton Manning. In light of Manning's absence from the field, the team is a head-shaking 0-6. Taking a look at their schedule, it's hard to know when--or if--the team will get their first win.
