10 Things You Didnt Know About Eli Manning (Photos)

Eli and his wife, Abby.

While there is a lot that we know out there about the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady, little do we stay-at-home moms know about the New York Giants’ Eli Manning.

From what we can tell, he’s nice, but not too charismatic, cute, but in a bit of a need of a haircut, and well, maybe not as fashionable as his Super Bowl counterpart, Tom Brady.

To put it simply, while Tom is a pair of Uggs, Eli is a pair of the worn-out white yet practical converse sneakers that are so comfortable you don’t want to throw them away.

Check out our top ten things you probably didn’t know about good ole’ Eli in our photo gallery below. The celebrity father looks like a quite likeable guy, if not one that is in need of a more modern haircut, no?
