It seems The Other Manning is struggling with a tummyache. Reports are that the “football Giants” QB missed practice with a mysterious stomach ailment. It could be a minor bug, or it could be that Peyton convinced him to break into mom’s liquor cabinet and make “tornadoes” again.
The Giants backup QB is David Carr, who was so good that last year the Niners benched him for Troy Smith. So here’s to hoping Eli’s tummyache is soon accompanied by fever and explosive diarrhea through Sunday. After that he can get better if he wants. Maybe. Whatever.
Because it singlehandedly provided the Niners with the luck needed to pull out last week’s victory, I will once again be running a post “extending a warm welcome” to the Giants and their fans. If you have any jokes/observations which you care to contribute (about New Jersey? Of course you do,) feel free to leave them in the comments.
Also, the baseball Giants (read: the good Giants) agreed to buy out Sandoval’s remaining arbitration years. So depending on your opinion of his work ethic/dietary habits, it’s either “three more years of Pablo!” or “three more years of Pablo?”
