Peyton Manning interviewed by Snoop Dogg On Final Media Day Before Super Bowl 50

 

 

On the final day of media interviews ahead of Super Bowl 50, Peyton Manning was given a reprieve from answering many of the same questions, albeit a brief one.

Standing to the side of the podium Thursday was the rapper Snoop Dogg (credentialed as Cordozar Broadus), who spent his morning as a correspondent for The Rich Eisen Show.

After first asking Manning if he could get a 50 percent discount at Papa John’s in Colorado — “Absolutely. Absolutely,” Manning said — Snoop followed with a real question.

“With this big game right here,” he asked, ” is it safe to say you’re getting advice from Archie and Eli?”

Manning’s response: “Well, Snoop, I’ve always enjoyed my conversations with my dad and Eli, as far as things that have to do with the NFL. I had dinner with Eli the other night. He and I talked about a lot of things. Certainly he played against these guys earlier in the year. We talked about the practice routine and the setup. He is great to bounce ideas off of. My dad has always been a great sounding board from me throughout my lifetime. I am very grateful to have both of those guys, who have played in the NFL and still in the NFL, to be able to talk to. I feel very fortunate.”

The celebrity sighting shifted the focus, if temporarily, but added to the light mood on the Broncos’ final media blitz before Sunday’s game.
