NFL legend Peyton Manning apparently crashed a Boston Celtics film session recently just for the hell of it.
According to The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach, Manning wanted to watch the film with the Celtics because he “missed” being a part of film sessions.
Cs assistant Micah Shrewsberry said Peyton Manning genuinely just wanted to watch film with the Celtics because he missed watching film. Didn’t totally get what was going on but just loved being in the environment.

Seriously, how could you hear this story and not instantly admit Manning is the man? I don’t care if you supported him during his playing days or not. Crashing an NBA film session because you miss breaking down tape is laugh-out-loud funny, especially considering it’s a completely different sport.
Manning rode off into the sunset after winning the Super Bowl, and he obviously has a ton of time on his hands to kill. You can’t do insurance commercials all day long. (RELATED: The Denver Broncos Win The Super Bowl)
I have no idea what the future holds for Manning, but I really hope he just continues showing up to film sessions he’s not a part of.
We need him in an NHL locker room breaking down film immediately. Now, that would be content gold without a doubt.
Major props to Manning for still being the man!
