DENVER -- Thanks for the hookup, Bro.
That's essentially what Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said to younger brother Eli this week after the New York Giants quarterback handled his Super Bowl XLVIII requests. After all, the Broncos are playing Seattle on Eli's home field, MetLife Stadium.
When asked about the number of tickets Peyton has requested, Eli told reporters: "I have hit that number."
It's a safe bet Eli asked the same of Peyton a couple years ago when the Giants played New England in a Super Bowl played in Indianapolis, Peyton's old hometown.
"Eli and I have done that in the past. You try to help out any way you can," Peyton said. "That is certainly a way that I think I’ve been helpful to him and he’s been helpful to me the past two that I’ve played in, and he’s helped me out again this year. You certainly appreciate that."
