Eli Manning made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night to talk about the New York Giants' victorious win during the 2012 Super Bowl. But Sunday wasn't only pure bliss for the quarterback because of the win; Manning's 11-month-old baby, Ava Frances, learned how to clap.
Manning held daughter with wife Abby, Ava Frances, almost one year old, while confetti was raining down on the field at Indianapolis.
She was a trooper, Manning said. She stayed up the whole game, past her bedtime and learned how to clap this weekend and give a high five, Manning said.
Manning arrived nearly an hour late for his appearance on the Letterman show, arriving by helicopter from a celebration in Orlando at Disney World. Manning flew from Indianapolis Monday morning to Orlando and was still in Florida when the Giants' returned to Newark.
Letterman asked Manning a slew of football related questions and how he celebrated his second Super Bowl win.
We celebrated, Manning said laughing. You know, the locker room, it's a great scene. You see all your teammates, you get a lot of hugs, see all your coaches, and then you go to the team hotel, have a big party for the team. I kind of host my own party for family and friends, so it's great. I walk in, I see a lot of my college teammates, high-school teammates I played football with ... I swear they're more excited than I am. It's like they won the Super Bowl ... They're fired up.
Letterman also pressed Manning about his brother, Peyton Manning, and his status as an elite quarterback, to which he fired back at the Late Show host.
Um, it's like someone asking you, 'Are you an elite talk show host?' What would you say? Manning said laughing. I'm sure you think you're pretty good at this.
