And you thought Arod was the oddball NY athlete. Eli Manning owns a bizarre William Dunlap commissioned picture of himself, complete with the misspelled 'Annointed' tag. “It wasn’t intentional,” Dunlap said of the spelling error. “There’s no secret message there.” Though the Mississippi-born artist points out that is is relgious: “He would appear to be anointed, in the parlance of our Protestant religious fables and myths.” Dunlap, 69, said the painting’s title refers to Manning’s bloodlines — father Archie quarterbacked the Saints for a decade, and future Hall of Fame brother Peyton is Denver’s signal-caller. Manning owns a similar painting of 1950s star Charlie Conerly. Eli also starred at the University of Mississippi, where Charlie Conerly and Glynn Griffing also played before being drafted by the Giants — making him the “third in the trinity,” said Dunlap, who gave the painting to Manning as a gift after the QB bought an early work he did of Conerly. “He was gracious and thanked me profusely,” Dunlap said. Eli apparently also owns a painting depicting 6 dogs...5 of them for some reason represent members of the Manning family. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return to BobsBlitz.comFollow us on Twitter.
