NFL all-stars, quarterback Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts and defensive linebacker Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens will meet this Saturday in a playoff showdown in Indianapolis. In a sharp turn of events, Peyton Manning said, "If Ray Lewis wants the ball, I'll throw it to him."
Coaches on both sides called foul to this statement from Manning, especially since the two are on opposing teams. "Ray's a good guy, why jump for the interception when I can just throw it to him?" Peyton clarified.
"I'm no fool," responded Lewis, "he's messing with me." Not so according to reports of Manning sporting shirts that read, "Raven's Win Super Bowl 40." To his choice of gear, Lewis said, "How dumb does he think I am? Super Bowl 40 is in the past! Why don't his shirt say Ravens Win Super Bowl 44 or whatever the correct Roman numerals are?"
When asked of his revelation and intent to purposely give the opposing team the ball, the Colt's quarterback said, "What's the difference? It's just a game. The Colts have won more than the Ravens this year, I think it's only fair."
Archie Manning, the father of both Peyton and brother Eli Manning who is quarterback of the NY Giants told reporters, "He's a smart kid. If he thinks it's better to hand Lewis the ball then I agree with him."
Brother Eli on the other hand whose team did not make the playoffs said, "What's my brother smoking? He clearly needs a spanky spank from our Mom! I knew he'd pull this shit."
After a call from his tattletale brother Eli to their Mom in Louisiana she reportedly told the press, "If he thinks he has a weird-shaped head now, just wait! If he knows what's good for him, he won't do it!"
In New Orleans, Dad Archie Manning was seen attempting to purchase tickets to the New Orleans/Arizona game, which will also be held this coming Saturday. "I'll just stay out of it," he frowned, "Mom's the one with the frying pan."
