The Other Paper:
People picking up their usual morning coffee from a N.J. Dunkin' Donuts were probably asking for something a little stronger after they were surprised to see the guy at the drive-through window had a strange resemblance to Eli Manning. No, the shocked drivers didn't forget to wipe the sleep from their eyes because the grinning guy in the No. 10 New York Giants jersey was
the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
Is there anything this guy can't do? Besides winning his second Super Bowl, the Giants quarterback has hosted "Saturday Night Live," thrown out the first pitch at Sunday's New York Mets game and two days later is doling out cups of Turbos and Hazelnuts at a donut franchise.
Manning spent Tuesday morning at the East Rutherford Dunkin' Donuts as part of his new partnership with the donut chain. But a few hours earlier, he was at his "real job" working out at the Giants facility.
"Obviously, I've tried to manage my time well," Manning said. "I was able to get up, get a workout at the facility today, kind of get my preparations done."
Manning said he'll appear in a series of ads for the chain over the next few months. The normally low-key Manning is getting more face time than Tim Tebow — alright, almost as much—but he claims his number one priority is getting ready for the Giants 2012 season.
"The off-season is a time to try and get some things done and do some things you want to do, like Saturday Night Live and those types of opportunities, as long as as it doesn't affect my preparation for football and my commitment to the Giants," Manning said.
It sounds like the one thing Manning didn't get to do was attempt to catch Mets phenom R.A. Dickey's knuckleball on Sunday.
"It's been fun to watch him this season," Manning said. "I kinda asked him if I could get up there and he could throw me a few knuckleballs. I just wanted to see what it looked like. But we didn't have the time."
For some reason I don't think Easy Eli is an Old-Fashioned donut kinda guy any more.

These fish-out-of-water promotions that feature rich and famous people working fast food drive-thrus should be getting old, but they’re not.

Fans in Flushing were in for a treat yesterday when Eli Manning tossed the Fathers’ Day ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field. (I always thought the rule was Giants-Yankees; Jets-Mets? Whatever) He arrived at the mound with his daughter, Ava in his arm and lofted one of those famous Eli passes that we’ve seen go [...]
It's been a busy and newsworthy last couple of months for Eli Manning. He's appeared on "Saturday Night Live," hobnobbed with President Obama at the White House, and thrown the first pitch at a Mets game.
His latest off-field act has him strapping on a headset and ... well, doing something no other two-time Super Bowl MVP has done before.
On Tuesday morning...

When college coed Jessica Gormley went in to have her wisdom teeth removed, I'm pretty sure that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was on her mind on some level.
After the surgery, she was recovering and while her mother captured it on video, Jessica decided to ask Eli for a jersey and wanting to go to a New York Giants game:

Adorable. Eli’s daughter hearts balls. Good luck with that one, Eli. I wonder what the other first words were. My money is on “blumpkin.”

Eli Manning used his arm to help the New York Giants win two Super Bowls so throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before Sunday's New York Mets game against the Cincinnati Reds sounded easier than the quarterback's laid-back demeanor. Manning was so confident, he threw the ball while holding his daughter, Ava, in his left arm while he did it. It was Father's Day...
