Here’s Eli Manning Flipping the Double Birds on Live Television

from espn 2

One of the few moments from last night that actually elicited some of sort of joy, here’s Eli talking about his experiences playing in Philly:

“You can blur that out, right?”


Not sure Eli knows how live television works. You gotta have an editor do the blur in pre-production, so it’s not like you’ve got an intern sitting on a delayed feed with that sort of capability.

But anyway, the Manning brothers broadcast is so good. It’s a perfect blend of humor, entertainment, and learning at the same time. These guys will go from cracking jokes about one another to explaining a Tampa 2 Robber scheme. For that reason, I’ve found myself sitting on this broadcast and then only flipping to the main broadcast when I need a replay review or explanation of a penalty or something specific to what’s happening on the field.
