Eli Manning has to buy Peyton Manning’s Super Bowl XLVIII tickets


For years, Peyton Manning and younger brother Eli Manning have had a deal. When one of them reaches the Super Bowl, it’s the duty of the fellow sibling to not only handle the ticket requests – but to lay down the money for them as well.

Playing in a Super Bowl is stressful enough, but when you’re a star player – let alone a star quarterback – you likely have ticket requests coming out the wazoo.

Understandably, neither Manning wants to deal with such so they’ve employed the other brother to handle it.

Eli said Peyton requested a certain number of tickets. “I have hit that number,” Eli said proudly.

Players get a certain number of tickets for family/friends but Manning will clearly have to buy more than the limited supplied amount made available to each player.

Wonder who gets the duties of tickets of Peyton and Eli both made the Super Bowl?

Guess it’s a good thing Eli decided to have the worst season of his career so he could play assistant for a week.
