Eli Manning knew this was coming. Any sports figure who makes an appearance on “Saturday Night Live” has to be prepared to hear about it from their teammates. Manning got mixed reviews for his performance over the weekend, but for the most part people seem to think he was pretty funny and handled it well. Naturally, the Giants were awaiting Manning’s arrival at their practice facility Monday morning so they could have a little fun at his expense.

According to the NY Post, a few teammates told Eli he looks good in a dress as a reference to a skit where he dressed up in a bright yellow dress and wore a blonde wig. Others threw bananas at him to needle him about the sexting skit where a picture of Manning was shown holding a banana in front of his crotch.

“All good-hearted,’’ Manning said. “They all say they got some good laughs out of it so that is always good.’’

Manning also said that some of the “SNL” cast members were amazed that he wasn’t nervous and that, while it was a great experience, he wouldn’t want to have to do it every week.

“Everybody was very nice, very helpful and I told them from the get-go I said “Guys, remember I’m a football player, you have a lot of actors and stuff on here, I need help, I need guidance, don’t be afraid to say hey, this is what we want you to do in this skit,” Eli explained. “I’m looking to be coached here.’ They understood that, they were very nice and helpful.”

He certainly didn’t kill it like Peyton did a few years back, but nobody expected him to. Peyton’s a better actor, but Eli has one more Super Bowl ring. Low blow? Unnecessary? My bad.
