Eli Manning Hosts Virtual Eli Manning Tailgate
Before the 2019 NFL season, Eli Manning hosted a virtual tailgate event. Presented by Frank’s RedHot, it was live-streamed over Zoom. The legendary Giants quarterback and his teammates Shaun O’Hara and Victor Cruz were among the special guests.
Manning used his Twitter account to connect with fans. He shared a Zoom link with his followers and asked them to join the event. The Zoom call allowed fans to interact with Manning and play games. This allowed Manning to take the time to talk to fans. Fans also got to see Manning in person.
The event was a celebration of Manning’s first NFL win. Fans were able to see him throw a pass to a former teammate, Victor Cruz. Eli and Shaun O’Hara also played giant Jenga, cornhole, and ladder golf. Manning even drank a bottle of Frank’s RedHot, a rum-based beverage.
A homegate before the game is an event the quarterback hosts to promote his team. A homegate is a great way for a fan to meet their favorite player. Fans can meet up with their favorite players and play games with the players before the game. However, there’s one big problem with tailgating. During the coronavirus outbreak, fans couldn’t even attend the game.
Eli Manning will have his jersey number retired at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. It’s an honor to have someone of his caliber carry himself and take all his responsibilities. And if the Giants win again, Manning is surely a favorite in the stadium. And with the fans’ support, the team will continue to win.
Eli Manning may have been controversial in his own right, but he left a lasting mark on the region he called home. His availability and dependability earned him the respect of teammates and the entire region. In the end, that admiration is much more than a compliment, and it’s a true testament to his character.
In addition to his upcoming role as the quarterback of the New York Giants, Eli Manning is also taking on a host of new projects for the company. This fall, he will host a show on ESPN+ that focuses on college football. His brother, Peyton Manning, already hosts an NFL series called Peyton’s Places on the streaming network.
