Peyton Manning's teammate asks him if his chicken parm tastes good
When Peyton Manning isn't throwing touchdowns he's invariably making commercials. At least it feels that way, given how often he shows up on our televisions.
When Peyton Manning isn't throwing touchdowns he's invariably making commercials. At least it feels that way, given how often he shows up on our televisions hawking everything from pizza to cars to insurance to football on your phone.
It's gotten to the point that Peyton doesn't even watch himself.
"I change the channel immediately," he told the Associated Press. "And if other teammates are in the room, I run out of the room. I don't even want to hear the abuse coming my way. I don't watch a ton of TV, so I don't see a lot of it. But that's what I do, I change the channel. Nobody should be caught watching themselves on a commercial."
Fair enough, but Manning's commercial ubiquity means the more he's going to hear about it from teammates. Like, say, defensive lineman Mitch Unrein, who was in the team cafeteria with Manning.
"We had some chicken parmesan in the lunch room the other day and he was loading it up and I said, 'Hey, what is that?'" Unrein said Wednesday.
"Oh, it's chicken 'parm,'" Manning said.
"I was like, 'Oh, does it taste so good?" Unrein joked.
If that sounds familiar, it should:
It was a layup," Manning said of Unrein's crack. "I just served it right up to him."
"I didn't know what was going to happen when I started giving him a hard time about it, "Unrein said. "But he was a good sport about it. ... Everyone can (roast him), but it takes a certain amount of guts to do it. And I was feeling lucky that day. ... It kind of just came to me and I decided to give him a hard time."
