Curious as to what Eli and Peyton Manning have done during the NFL lockout?
Fighting crime, of course.
Here’s the DirecTV trailer for Football Cops:
Peyton and Eli Manning star in this action-packed drama about two former pro football players who bring their unique brand of law enforcement to one of the country’s toughest neighborhoods. Mike Tahoe (Peyton Manning) was living the dream as a big league quarterback, until a personal tragedy brought him back to the mean streets of his childhood. Vowing to bring those who wronged him to swift justice, he enlists the help of his best friend, and biggest rival, C.J. Hunter (Eli Manning). Both grew up together as orphans in a home for wayward boys. Both overcame the odds to become huge sports stars. Now both are the only hope for the rugged streets they once again call home.
Love the mustaches, fellas.
Call me old-fashioned, but it’s kind of tacky to give people a present with your name on it, no? But that’s what Oprah Winfrey and Nike founder Phil Knight did during Winfrey’s show on Tuesday, giving the audience free running shoes that had Oprah’s name on the toe and both of their names on the shoelaces. Nice bit of product placement – provided the audience has equally bad taste and is willing to wear shoes that carry free advertising for two of the world’s biggest moguls.
Giving the audience a free pair of Nikes (without crass advertising) was too much to ask?
