Talk about a throwback--any guesses as to what exactly transpired to get this spread of top NFL talent from back in the day--Peyton Manning, Michael Strahan, Roy Williams, Tony Gonzalez--into this clothing and these poses? Were the late 90s/early 2000s really this bad in terms of fashion, or were these looks served up special for the Flea Flicker World Tour?
Three months have passed since the order of the NFL universe was altered when the Indianapolis Colts cut their quarterback of 14 seasons, Peyton Manning, and he found a new home in Denver with the Broncos. The ripple effect of the signing was that the beloved Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Did you tune in to the ESPYs on Wednesday night? If not, don't you worry. It doesn't sound like many other people did, either. The awards show suffered its lowest ratings since 1995.
Evidently, only just under 2 million of us--1.94 million, to be exact-- bothered to tune in to the glitz and glam of the sports world. These numbers are down 24% from the show's viewership last year, when 2.61 million people tuned in.
