Eli Manning Flips The Double-Bird On ‘Monday Night Football’ And Apologizes
The former New York Giants star was telling an anecdote about how young Philadelphia Eagles fans used to give him the middle finger from each hand. At first, he gave a PG demonstration with clenched fists, but then he extended those digits to fully demonstrate.
“Can we do that?” he asked.
Turns out, probably not. He later apologized and playfully blamed guest and former NFL defensive end Chris Long, who seemed more amused by the moment than big brother Peyton Manning.
The Dallas Cowboys were routing the Philadelphia Eagles in Monday’s game, so the broadcast on ESPN2 needed something extra anyway.
