    Great quote from a very young Eli

    The following in blue is the closing of the Peter Finney article in this morning's New Orleans Times-Picayune. The URL for the complete article is below that. Apologize if already posted.

    pondering his philosophy on sports posted in the Newman School yearbook under the name Elisha Nelson Manning.

    It says: “Effort in sports is a matter of character rather than reward. It is an end in itself, not a means to an end.”

    that quote tells you all you need to know why Eli and his family wanted him to play for the Giants and why the kid is a success. I can only imagine that Peyton follows the same credo. Actaully that sentiment can be held to any "effort" you have in life to dowell in any field.

    I'm from the first generation that grew up with television as as a normal thing to have in the house and the devil pot hit in Mississippi just as I was finishing high school............I won't be playing with Weatherford in the ******* Super Bowl, either.
