Archie joins Peyton in peddling pizza
DENVER (AP) - Peyton Manning figured one good Papa deserved another.
While he was sitting out last season with his neck injury, Peyton Manning starred in a Papa John’s Super Bowl commercial with Jerome Bettis. Manning was dressed up as a referee. “Hey, a man’s gotta work, OK” he told Bettis.
After signing with the Broncos, Peyton Manning invested in 21 of the company’s pizza stores in the Denver area. More recently, Papa John’s approached Archie about being a spokesman for the Super Bowl promotion. Starting Sunday, fans can go online and choose heads or tails for the opening coin toss. The winners will get free pizza.
“Only thing that would be better is if the Broncos were playing in the game,” Archie Manning said. “Or the Giants. Or both. But it’s going to be good stuff.”
Before last season, when Eli Manning’s Giants lost the coin toss, the NFC had won 14 straight flips. The odds of that happening are around 16,000-1.
“Before we went into that one, Eli said, `Know your lines,’” Archie Manning said. “Anytime you do a commercial with Peyton, you should know your lines. He thinks an eight-hour commercial shoot should take three hours. He’s a perfectionist. The idea always is, `Don’t bust a play.’”
