Peyton Manning handshake absent Super Bowl.Â Quarterback Peyton Manning handshake would have been nice for the Saints, but after losing the Super Bowl the quarterback stormed off the field.Â Of course, he could have been trying to avoid a Tebow-esque breakdown – but still – he should have at least shook the hand of the Saints quarterback.
Many Manning fans are shocked about the lack of Peyton Manning’s handshake after the Super Bowl loss.Â Of course, everyone knows that he is sometimes a little particular about the game.Â Okay – make that very particular and sometimes anal.Â But that’s what makes him the best.
Another thing that’s shocking about Peyton Manning’s handshake-less Super Bowl was that he grew up in New Orleans.Â The Saint’s victory should have been bittersweet to him.Â On one hand, his father used to play for the Saints so he should feel a little proud of the team.
On the other hand, the Colts were favored to win and had an almost undefeated season.Â Everyone expected them to win.
I must say I was shocked that Peyton Manning didn’t shake hands with the opposing team.Â Up until this point, he’s always exudedÂ bit of southern charm that goes a long way in making him attctive for the masses. Never would I have thought the day would come when “classless” was put in the same sentene along with “Peyton Manning.”
