Eli Manning teases new college football show, 'Eli's Places'


All that's left now is for Cooper Manning to start up "Cooper's Places" and share stories about high school football.

That's because Eli Manning announced through a video — which, I must say, had me questioning the legitimacy of the new show — that he's joining ESPN+ in the fall to host "Eli's Places," heading to different schools and sharing college football stories from around the country.

"I'm going to the biggest universities, I'm gonna get the greatest stars to show me the most iconic places in college football history," Eli says to a skeptical Peyton.

Ironically, the tease came in a promotional ad for season two of "Peyton's Places," also on ESPN+, which apparently has some friendly competition coming its way.

A handful of Eli Manning's new ESPN colleagues reacted to the promo video with excitement and were more than happy to welcome him aboard the crew.

It's not the first time that Eli has taken an opportunity in media, and it certainly won't be the last. From SNL skits to raps alongside Peyton in various commercials, the youngest Manning brother has kept himself busy in his post-football ventures, and this new gig with ESPN+, as we await more details and an official ESPN announcement, is yet another example.
