Payton Manning – Sportsmanship and Class
NEWARK – Sports – Denver Bronco Quarterback Payton Manning had a miserable Sunday losing the Super Bowl to the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle seemed to have brought their “12th Man” to the Met Life Stadium. Twelve seconds into the game, Seattle scored. Manning was unable to get his voice heard over the loud screaming fans.
The ball sailed over his head from the snap and led to a safety.
Manning stood tall after the game. Demonstrating what sportsmanship and class in sports is all about.
The Denver Quarterback had to be disappointed, his second trip to the Super Bowl came up without a win. Throughout Sunday’s game, it seemed each time Denver appeared to get things going, there was either an interception, or a fumble.
The day, the game and the Vince Lombardi trophy may belong to Seattle, but if there is an award for class it must go to Payton Manning.
Long after an NFL player hangs it up, the things that people remember will last far longer than any single plan. In this case Payton Manning walked out of Met Life Stadium a winner.
