Well, that may not have been a good(e) decision, but it led to a wonderful new thing.
The beauty of it is that “Penguin Boy” really does seem to fit Manning, who continues to possess a sort of youthful awkwardness even into his 35th year. Apparently, he already has the nickname “Easy E,” but that doesn’t seem to have stuck any more than his brother Peyton is actually known as “The Sheriff.” (Seriously, who calls him that?)
Needless to say, the Internet was all aboard this exciting new development.
From here on out, we probably should just let closed captioning determine all of our sports nicknames. After all, that’s how Nik Stauskas came to be known as “Sauce Castillo.”
