If there is one thing that Peyton Manning is great at besides playing Quarterback it’s keeping his personal life personal. For instance, Manning has lived in Denver for about three years now and I can count on one hand the number of times that he has been seen out in public with either his wife or his children.
Manning has been featured in numerous commercials for various companies, but other than that and one of the better episodes of Saturday Night Live he does a pretty good job staying away from television. Manning successfully fought back tears after being released by the team that drafted him and the city that he built, proving that he is not a very animated guy. It’s been proven that it takes a lot to get Manning wound up. So with that being said, have you noticed anything different about Peyton Manning?
For a guy that tends to keep to himself, it seems as if Manning has been having a little more fun than usual during these last few months. In early May he was tossing footballs into taxi cabs with David Letterman. Just last week he was seen having some fun with the local media as training camp began and today Manning was seen dancing to “Rocky Top” during the stretching period of today’s practice.
Manning also decided to bring out his twins, Marshall and Mosley, for some play time with daddy after the Broncos wrapped up their practice at Sports Authority Field on Saturday.
Maybe Manning is finally deciding to have a little bit of fun now that his playing days are winding down. We all know that Peyton Manning has only got a few years left in him, so it’s nice to see him finally stop and soak it all in. It’s all fun and games now, but we all know that in a few weeks it’s back to business.
