Eli Manning followed in the footsteps of big brother, Peyton, Saturday night as host of Saturday Night Live. Eli usually comes off low-key and reserved in his dealings with the public, but he shined on the stage of SNL and took a few chances (dressing in drag, Tebowing and stripping down to his underwear with a well-placed banana). The highlight of the night was a skit titled “Little Brothers” that had Eli standing up for little brothers everywhere.
Another highlight was his opening monologue where the Louisiana-born, Mississippi-schooled Manning talks about being a real New Yorker now. His recommendation for great Italian food: the Olive Garden in New Jersey.
