Peyton, Eli Manning visit Knute Rockne's house during episode of 'Eli's Places'
Eli Manning brought on his brother Peyton in another installment of “Eli’s Places,” a streaming show on ESPN+, as they made a visit to Knute Rockne’s house.
“If I was going to make a pilgrimage to one of college football’s meccas, I had to go in style, and bring the biggest football history buff I know,” Eli said.
Of course, that’s Peyton.
“If you’re going to knock on Knute Rockne’s door, you might as well do it in a ’32 Rockne Studebaker,” Peyton said.
The brothers then joked about how cars aren’t named after football coaches or players anymore.
Eli then gave a brief history lesson and how Rockne helped sell vehicles because he was a storied coach in college football history.
“Rockne invented coaching as we know it, and even helped a wash-up actor become president,” Eli said.
The legend of Knute Rockne may have been a history lesson for me, but it was a memory for Peyton. pic.twitter.com/W4FPqZ0j27
