I guess the name "Eli" sounds like it could be Jewish. But Manning? Maybe Mann.
I did learn a few things after looking into Eli Manning (the quarterback for the New York Giants for those who don't know, and the less famous brother of Peyton Manning) and his supposed connection to the Tribe. It seems that Eli Manning's favourite show is Seinfeld. And because of that, a local Green Bay TV station pulled Seinfeld from its schedule this weekend (there is a playoff game in Green Bay today for those who don't know).
Jerry Seinfeld fired back:
Jerry Seinfeld Boosts NFL's Eli Manning With 'Complete Series'
Jerry Seinfeld is boosting his local American football team's chances of making this year's (08) Super Bowl - by sending the star quarterback copies of his hit show Seinfeld.
The comedian stepped in after discovering that bosses of Green Bay Wisconsin's Fox Wluk-TV had pulled the show from the schedules ahead of the Green Bay Packers' championship game against the New York Giants on Sunday (20Jan08) - because it is Giants player Eli Manning's favourite show.
Giants fan Seinfeld says, "You think I'm going to take that sitting down?
"I'm going to send Eli a complete collection of Seinfeld Dvds."
A couple more things: I expected to hit 200,000 in late 2007, but lately I've been blogging less and less, causing my hits per day to average under 200. At the beginning of 2007 I was averaging over 250 a day.
And secondly, I discovered another "Reason For Not Having Sex" to add to my growing list. I heard it yesterday....first hand: "It is my birthday today, not yours."
