This is one of those ex-athletes that I find quite entertaining

Peyton Manning - you've seen him on the field countless times in the past, and of course in the Super Bowl. There is also another Manning, Eli, who played professional football and I'm from San Diego, so I will ALWAYS despise him for telling the Chargers back in 2004 that he wouldn't play for them ( he was picked #1 overall by San Diego in the NFL Draft ). I have no hate for Peyton though, I actually think he is pretty entertaining.
