That Peyton Manning. Despite the sour “Manningface” persona that rears it’s ugly, uh, face, during games throughout his career, off the field, the quarterback has developed quite the humorous persona, crafted in large part by his hilarious appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” not to mention his many amusing commercials.
But little did we know up until recently that Peyton Manning was a skilled artisan of the practical joker guild. Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker learned that the hard way when Manning crafted a well-executed practical joke, using how the two, as well as two other Broncos wide receivers, Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas — not to mention several other NFL players — currently are holding workouts this week at Duke University.
Manning apparently sent Decker a fake invoice from “Duke Football,” charging him for miscellaneous services, including laundry service and on-field instruction from the Duke football coaching staff.
