On Tuesday night Peyton rounded up his teammates and took them on a little field trip to the Colorado Rockies vs. New York Yankees game. It’s great to see Peyton bringing all of his teammates together for some team bonding. These are the types of things that make Manning a great leader on and off the field. But Manning also likes to have a little fun on the side as well. One of the teammates at the game was right tackle Orlando Franklin. This happened to be Franklin’s first professional baseball game so he was the perfect target for one of Manning’s pranks. This time Manning enlisted the help of his wide receiver Eric Decker. While Franklin was doing an interview with a Rockies broadcaster Decker gave him a plateful of shaving cream right to the face. This is something many baseball players do to a player after a walk off win. Now Franklin doesn’t look like the type of guy I would want to prank, but I’m sure Decker was just glad to be on Manning’s side this time. Earlier this offseason Manning brought together Decker, Demaryius Thomas, and Wes Welker to work out with him at Duke University. At the end of the weekend Manning made Decker think he had to pay for his voluntary workout by sending him an invoice that included a facility fee, laundry service fee, and a fee from the athletic training staff. The total bill read $3,217.50. I wonder who Manning is going to prank next.
Check out the bill to Decker and the note to the others:
