New York, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2012
The two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is no stranger to the bright lights. Coming off a spectacular performance and victory in Super Bowl XLVI, Manning continued to increase his endorsement value in the off-season and decided to add a little fun to his busy schedule. Manning has accepted the offer to grace the stage on May 5, 2012 to host a special appearance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, after a busy off-season of speaking engagements.
In typical Quarterback fashion, Eli Manning asked the network for a game plan before agreeing to become the latest sports celebrity to do the show. To the surprise of Manning, he did not find any fourth quarter comeback plays that required him to go 90 yards in under 2 minutes, but what he did find one of the funniest scripts he has ever read.
In fact when asked which of the show’s cast members his favorite was, he refused to pick any individual, saying, “It is kind of like asking, ‘Who is your favorite receiver?’ You can get in trouble answering those questions.” But he also added, “Whoever can write the funniest script for me will probably be my favorite one afterwards.”
His May 5 appearance will be one of many appearances he has made since winning Super Bowl XLVI. Fans at home were able to watch him live on “Late Show with David Letterman” where he let viewers at home know, "When you win a championship, it’s a team. It’s a team coming together, and that’s exactly what we did, and so I was happy for a lot of the guys. This is their first Super Bowl, so I think when you have one, that second one, you really do it for the other guys who’ve never had that experience. The first one just is wild."
His off season would not be complete without an appearance at Walt Disney World. This long standing tradition has brought in many celebrity appearances along with many athlete appearances as many stare right into the camera after a victory or joyous moment and shout, “I’m going to Disney World.”
Manning will be in the hunt for his third championship and will be making the Giants facility his Disney World as he will be spending endless hours preparing for the joyous ride with his young offensive weapons like Victor Cruz, Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks.
