Peyton Manning is a Horse’s Ass

We are in the process of revamping and re-kickstarting the Incredi-Forum which during it’s hayday saw thousands of hits per day, and has been languishing for the past 11 months. If you’re a member, stop by and add your two cents, if you’re not a member, go and sign up. It’s fun, free, and unlike my blog, it’s completely uncensored!

Peyton Manning is going to the Superbowl. I guess what they say is true, “every dog has his day.” I can’t think of anyone in the NFL more annoying to me as Peyton Manning. He is a good football player… I think we all acknowledge (grudgingly) that fact.

However, he has one skill that is even more refined than his quarterbacking skills… his arrogance.

One of the things I always notice about Peyton is that he will endorse anything. And everything. Because lord knows his salary as an NFL quarterback isn’t enough. The one I hate the most is the one for some cellular service. The exact brand escapes me. But he basically wears a fake moustache and talks about how strapping and talented Peyton Manning is.

I realize that Peyton didn’t write the commercial. No kidding.

But can any of us imagine…. hmmm…. any decent person acting like such a horse’s ass, even if it was a paid endorsement written by someone else?

I’m reminded of the AFC game where the Colts and Chiefs went to overtime. At the coin toss, Peyton won, and when asked if they would receive or kick off, he exclaimed (over the loudspeakers) “We want to receive, because we’re gonna WIN!” Hmmm. Not the most classy thing ever uttered over the loudspeaker system to 80,000 fans… plus the TV audience.

And, in Peyton Manning fashion, the Colts went on to lose in overtime.

His exuberance is overshadowed by his classless arrogance.

It’s really shocking to me that Peyton didn’t choke in the game yesterday, as is his pattern. My only explanation is that Brady choked…

I’m going to be cheering (much to my own dismay) for Chicago in the Superbowl. Maybe when Peyton matures a bit, I’ll be able to see him for the great football player that he is.

Stats don’t mean a thing if you’re a big, stupid jerk.

    Heh. I like the commercials. I think they’re funny. And, I’m totally embarrassed to admit that the first few times I saw that cellular commercial, I had no idea it was him. I just thought hired a badly mustached actor. I don’t care about football really, but I’m sad my hunky Tom Brady will be sitting at home on SuperBowl Sunday. Poor Tom. 🙂

    Aw Incredipetey, you’re not being a sore loser, are you? There’s nothing wrong with Peyton Manning or his commercials; I don’t see you lambasting Gene Simmons and he’s the biggest ad whore on the planet. Want to hate a Manning? Hate Eli. Now THAT’S arrogance.

    *whiny, pissy voice* “I don’t waaaaaaaana play for San Diego! They’re looooooosers!”

    I hope the Colts win the Superbowl. NYAH NYAH!

    I didn’t say Peyton was the “only” horse’s ass… just that he is one.

    Go Bears!

    If someone were to pay me many millions of dollars just to make a horse’s ass of myself on TV…I’d fucking say whatever they wrote. And then use some of the money to pay for some plastic surgery so no one could go “oh my god, it’s that annoying bitch from the ***** commercials.”

    And my only hope for the Superbowl is that I don’t have to watch it.

    Go Chicago Bears! My wish come true! I think it’ll be tough, but every time Peyton gets to a new level of important game, he inevitably becomes the most amateur quarterback ever! I think there’s a good chance he might lose again! Yay!

    Incredipete as usual you have missed the point completely. Peyton doesn’t do those commercials for the money, yes it is true that part is nice, but he does them specifically to make an ass out of himself. I recently listened to an interview with Broadway Joe Namath, in which Joe compared Peyton to himself.

    Both great quarterbacks, and both made fun of their “profession” while they played, because they don’t look at the game as a career but as a stepping stone that will allow them to not only live well, but also to have enough money to continue on in any endeavor they choose when they run out of years on the gridiron.

    So you see my pro-over populationist friend, they KNOW that what they do for a living is a form of entertainment, and just a game, so if you’re not having fun….you aren’t playing well. So enjoy the commercials and let the boys have their fun.

    He’s a jerk! Did you hear him whining about his line after that game a while back? I mean, seriously, they are the reason he has time to throw and make the big plays! He’s a whiner, and he’s all about himself! It’s not about the game, it’s not about fun, it’s about Peyton being everyone’s favorite! He is very emotionally needy!

    The truth is this: Peyton Manning IS strapping and talented. Who are the Chiefs?
