For a long time I bemoaned the fact that Eli Manning won a Super Bowl (let alone two), because it meant that making fun of Eli wasn’t nearly as fun. Sure he was still derpy, but he was derpy and a CHAMPION. For the last few years I’ve been convinced that being a champion outweighed all the derp. This photo proves I was wrong. Eli Manning, casually taking a photo of hurricane damage while wearing sweatpants is perfect. He looks like he’s at a party where he doesn’t know anyone. So thank you Eli Manning. Thank you for being both one of the best football players in the world, as well as a giant freaking muppet. I really appreciate it.
