I'm intrigued by the matchup of Peyton Manning vs the Jaguars stout defense, but I've found another story far more interesting.
Peyton Manning mutes Monday Night Football when he watches at home.
"I enjoyed watching (Eli) play on Monday night because I got a chance to see him play live on TV, and being able to watch the game in mute,'' Peyton said. "Because it's an easier way to watch the game than hear some of those broadcasters.''"
Tony Kornheiser, never one to pass on self-deprecation, correctly figured out who Peyton was discussing:
"Yeah, it's probably me,'' Kornheiser told Kravitz. "I'm sure it was the heads-on-sticks segment I did before the game. You think that upset him? Really? I thought it was very funny. I think most people thought it was hysterical. That wasn't me saying those funny, mean things about Peyton. That was Eli. That's the whole idea behind heads-on-sticks. I was just saying what Eli wanted to say. Like, 'What a raving egomaniac; he sent me a DVD of his 'Saturday Night Live' appearance.' It was the perfect marriage of PTI and Monday Night Football."
Here's a reason not to mute the broadcast tonight. Let's see if Tony responds ... I'm pulling for a segway into a commercial break asking viewers to hit mute if they don't want to hear any more Peyton Manning.
