ESPN announces Peyton Manning marathon to celebrate legendary quarterback's birthday
Tuesday, March 24, is Peyton Manning’s birthday.
If the former Tennessee quarterback has got some free time on his upcoming birthday, ESPN is making sure he’ll have something interesting to watch as the network has announced it plans to run a marathon of Manning content starting at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
The Manning content starting Tuesday night includes “Peyton’s Places” compilation episodes, “SEC Storied: The Book of Manning” documentary and select NFL highlights featuring many of Manning’s career highlights from his days in the pros.
The event will be hosted by ESPN’s Trey Wingo.
If you have never seen the “SEC Storied: The Book of Manning” documentary, it’s an outstanding movie focused on the Manning family that begins with Archie Manning’s humble beginnings and his success at Ole Miss before playing for the New Orleans Saints and raising Cooper, Peyton and Eli with his wife, Olivia.
The finale of ESPN’s Manning marathon will conclude with NFL Films’ Super Bowl Highlights: Super Bowl XLI, which happened to be Manning’s first Super Bowl title.
Here’s a rundown of all the Manning content ESPN has selected to run on Peyton’s 44th birthday on Tuesday:
