Peyton Manning reached out to Tom Brady when he introduced his retirement, giving the NFL legend a pleasant hand-written letter and a bottle of wine. Now he desires it again.
Usually I’m of the opinion whenever you give a present it’s misplaced to the ether. It’s a approach to be at peace with it. That mentioned, I completely perceive what it’s like to offer a present and really feel such as you had been duped. I nonetheless bemoan the immersion blender I gave to some acquaintances in 2013 solely to see them divorced 9 months later, as a result of hell, I’d actually like that immersion blender.
I’ve the sensation Peyton might be a extremely beneficiant reward giver. The wine is one factor, I wager it was a killer bottle — but it surely’s that hand-written letter that will get me. Are you aware how a lot I detest hand writing something nowadays? My God, when it’s time to fill out a greeting card it offers me flashbacks to writing a timed essay in school. It’s simply muscle reminiscence I not possess. If Manning wrote a real-ass letter, a number of paragraphs, maybe a web page or two — man, I’d be heated if my good friend simply un-retired proper after it.
So yeah, I’d ask for the letter again too. Not as a result of I’m petty, however as a result of I’d seal that sucker again up and maintain onto it for one more yr or two and provides it again to Tom. Appears solely becoming, all issues thought of.
Sure, everyone knows this was a joke — however I’m Group Peyton on this one. Give the person again his letter and wine.
