Betty is in D.C. this week with a whole lot of nothing to do! So she watches football and patters around the house in her socks and jeans.
You never know where you will find passion in this little life, and today Betty found herself another one: the Manning family, and specifically the underappreciated Manning, Eli [Elisha], of the New York Football Giants. He is from New Orleans and he lives in Hoboken with his fiancee. They have been together since college! Betty also thinks it is cool that Eli just led the Giants to a huge upset victory over the perennially annoying Dallas Cowboys. For those who don't know, Eli's brother, Peyton Manning, is a HUGE football star, probably the biggest in the game, and is a cool and funny guy who led his team (from Indianapolis, no less!) to Super Bowl glory last year. But Eli was born just a month before Betty and is totally cute and unassuming and as graceful under pressure as any mortal could hope to be!
Now Eli and New York/New Jersey will go for the Super Bowl, next week against the Packers. It's been a long time since the Giants have made it this deep into the jaws of the post-season. We can't say who will win, but we can say this: Eli will be electric. Stay tuned.
