Watch Peyton Manning’s hilarious video congratulating Drew Brees on breaking his record BY JOEL A. ERICKSON | firstname.lastname@example.org Oct 8, 2018
Peyton Manning couldn’t make it back to his hometown to see Drew Brees break his NFL record for all-time yards passing.
And honestly, it might have been better that way.
Manning filmed a video instead, fused with his well-known sense of humor, and it played to a Superdome crowd that got a good laugh in the first stoppage of play after Brees hit Tre’Quan Smith for a 62-yard touchdown pass to break Manning’s mark.
The camera opened on Manning cutting tomatoes, and a voice offscreen informs him that Brees just broke his record. Manning puts down his knife and looks up.
“Drew, for 1,000 days, I’ve held the record for all-time passing yards in the NFL, and I’ve got to tell you, it’s been the greatest 1,000 days of my life,” Manning said. “And thanks to you, that’s over now, and you’ve ruined that for me, so thank you very much, I have nothing left to look forward to but slicing my tomatoes, making dinner for my family, putting together this wedge salad.” Peyton Manning’s really happy you broke his record.Well … kind of. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/aUxXIDFzI8 — Denver Broncos (@Broncos) October 9, 2018 More from this section
This Mom Put a Terrifying Spin on Elf on the Shelf, and Hello, Nightmares!
Mom Replaces Elf on the Shelf With Doll in the Hall 1 Mom Put a “Halloween” Spin on Elf on the Shelf, and Kiss Sleep Goodbye October 10, 2018 First Published: October 9, 2018 790 Shares Chat with us on Facebook Messenger. Learn what’s trending across POPSUGAR.
Natasha Hudarovich, a mom with a wicked sense of humor, decided to shake things up this Halloween . In a now-viral Facebook post , she explained how she swapped out her kids’ traditional Elf on the Shelf experience with a much more sinister, Halloween-themed idea called “Doll in the Hall,” and we’re not sure whether we should laugh or cry.
“Instead of an Elf on the Shelf in December, I’m doing a Doll in the Hall in October,” wrote Natasha. “Basically, you take a creepy Annabel porcelain doll that your kids already believe is haunted and keep secretly moving it around the house. For an extra festive touch I put the doll right in bed with one of the kids whenever they throw it in the trash. It’s Day 3 and they want to move.”
Although you definitely need to have certain types of kids to ensure they don’t sleep in your bed until the ripe old age of 16 after going through this, Natasha’s idea gets bonus points for creativity. As someone who was often pranked by her own parents as a kid, I certainly applaud her.
Woman Writes Wild Obituary For Her Father, And It’s One Hell Of A Ride
10/09/2018 06:56 pm ET Woman Writes Wild Obituary For Her Father, And It’s One Hell Of A Ride Rick Stein was receiving cancer treatment at a hospital when he decided to break out, commandeer a single-engine plane and take flight over the Atlantic Ocean, she wrote. By Elyse Wanshel
Rick Stein, a classic man of mystery, had a life worthy of a movie.
Or at least that’s how his daughter, Alex Walsh, put it in a highly fictionalized, off-the-wall and totally engrossing obituary she wrote for her father , 71, on Sunday, according to The News Journal , a newspaper in Wilmington, Delaware.
Stein, according to his daughter’s tall tale, was receiving cancer treatment at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, when he decided to break out, commandeer a single-engine plane and take flight over the Atlantic Ocean.
“‘The sea was angry that day,’ said NTSB lead investigator Greg Fields in a press conference. ‘We have no idea where Mr. Stein may be, but any hope for a rescue is unlikely,’” Walsh wrote in the obit, filled with “Seinfeld” and “Breaking Bad” references.
What unfolds is the story of a man whose life was cryptic even to his relatives, with many claiming various occupations for Stein — gourmet chef, botanist, political satirist for HuffPost, trail guide in Rocky Mountain National Park, YouTube sensation and A&R consultant for Bad Boy records who “ran a chain of legal recreational marijuana dispensaries in Colorado called Casablunta.”
The biggest clue that the entire obituary is tongue in cheek is at the very end.
“That is one story,” Walsh writes at the end of her roller coaster ride. “Another story is that Rick never left the hospital and died peacefully with his wife and his daughter holding tightly to his hands.”
Although the notice is mostly made up, Walsh told The News Journal that she weaved in truthful details about her dad’s life, like his hobbies and his occupation as the owner of a jewelry company called Stuart Kingston Galleries. “My dad couldn’t even fly a plane. He owned restaurants in Boulder, Colorado and knew every answer on Jeopardy. He did the New York Times crossword in pen,” she quoted herself saying in the obituary.
She told the newspaper that her dad was recently diagnosed with a rare and aggressive type of cancer and that no one was prepared for his death.
His widow, Susan Stein (who makes obit), asked Walsh to write the obituary, and Walsh — who wrote an equally enthralling obituary for her aunt Alicia Flaherty Stein in 2013 — warned that it might be unconventional.
Walsh said she thinks her father would appreciate the obituary.
“It’s full of inside jokes,” she told The News Journal. “He had a great sense of humor. It was very dry.”
