"Peyton Manning is really good, so I'm going to get No. 18." Very smart move. 

"But everyone has a Peyton Manning jersey, how can I make mine different so that people take pictures of me and write about me? I know, I'll but 'Eli's brother' on the back." This isn't how I would spend $125, but to each their own.
