Fire alarm blares during Manning brothers' MNF broadcast: 'Eli, what'd you do?'

By , Audacy Sports

As entertaining as Peyton and Eli Manning were on their first regular season "Monday Night Football" broadcast for ESPN2, it wasn't one of them that stole the show during the game.

That honor belonged to one of their fire alarms.

Based on the elder Manning's reaction, it seems as though it was Eli's alarm that started blaring, though he seemed rather unfazed by such a loud noise going off on his side. I was one of the many, based on my Twitter feed, that jumped at the sound and checked to make sure the sound wasn't coming from my apartment building.

Others decided to use the opportunity to commend the entertainment value of the broadcast as a whole, praise the Manning brothers and their personalities, or even throw jabs at other personalities.

It hasn't only been the Manning brothers — or their fire alarms — doing the entertaining on Monday night. Charles Barkley and Ray Lewis joined the two former quarterbacks at different points in the first half, and Travis Kelce will make an appearance at some point in the second half.
