      Manning on the move.
      Does Peyton Manning ever sit on the couch and watch TV?

      After speaking at an “Omaha! Omaha!” sports banquet Thursday night, the Broncos quarterback will give the valedictory address at the University of Virginia's graduation ceremony Saturday. Talk about an NFL ambassador.

      It should be noted that Manning does all of these speeches during his downtime. He practiced with the Broncos on Thursday and will be back with them Monday.

              But how much was he paid?


              • #8
                He was paid slightly over 100k.

                I just got done watching the speech, and wow, it was great.

                  I think I would pass up watching TV, or just generally goofing off, if someone offered me 100K to speak somewhere...

                    He beat the crap out of the commencement speaker at my graduation.

                      I cant be bothered to watch, but did he really say something about Noah building an arc, comparing it to how experts built the titanic?

                        Eric LeGrand, paralyzed former Rutgers football player inspires graduates at commencement

                        PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Paralyzed former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand implored his fellow graduates to remember that anything is possible in an emotional speech Sunday during the university’s commencement ceremony.

                        LeGrand, who suffered a paralyzing injury during a 2010 game, was dressed in a cap and gown and drew long and loud cheers during his speech to the Class of 2014.

                        He told the crowd to remember that “anything is truly possible in this world.”

                        After LeGrand spoke, Rutgers President Robert Barchi announced that former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean, the event’s keynote speaker, had asked that his $35,000 speaking fee be used to establish a scholarship fund in honor of LeGrand and the entire graduating class.
