Peyton Manning may just be the coolest dork in history. He keeps popping up in cool places, with cool people, but...looking like a CPA. Last off-season was dedicated to commercials and SNL. This year, he's partying in Key West and New York with rock stars!
Last March, Manning became the first person in the history of civilization to sing a David Allen Coe song wearing a polo and khaki shorts. He earned a trifecta by performing his karaoke at Sloppy Joe's in a duet with Kenny Chesney. So, he's way cool for being in Key West at Sloppy Joes, singing with Kenny Chesney...but he's the only person in the joint wearing my uncle's favorite golf outfit.
Cut to Friday night in New York. Better Than Ezra (one of my favorite bands) is rocking the house. During their performance of "King of New Orleans," they bring out the Manning brothers. What kind of outfit are the Manning brothers working for the big show? What any one of us would...your standard button up shirt and blazer. They proceeded to fire some footballs out into the crowd (cool) and look very awkward moving to the music. So once again, cool for being there...but very dorky.
Sounds like the story of my life.
Cheers and Hail
