An Open Letter To Peyton Manning

What do you say to someone that has accomplished so much? How do you show your appreciation and gratitude? Gatorade found a way to do that for Peyton Manning by using his own words. To honor Manning’s hall of fame career and recognize him as he has for others through his iconic handwritten letters, Gatorade captured a selection of recipients from the letters Peyton wrote. Sentiments from the letters were read on film and then strung together into a new letter delivered as a message for Peyton – crafted from his own words.

The people who are in the video and who received a letter from Peyton are:

Tony Dungy – Peyton’s Indianapolis Colts head coach, 2002-2008; Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee; current NBC Analyst

See Who Conan Recommends For President

Usually celebrities don’t get involved in politics. They keep who they are voting for a secret. Well Conan O’Brien isn’t one of those people. He is telling the world. For him there is one clear choice. It is Zoe! Who is Zoe? Well she’s young, hip, and is still learning to walk. Zoe is running for president, and celebs are lining up to show her support: in addition to Conan, Alyssa Milano, Ciara, Tea Leoni and Kelly Osborne, among many others, have publicly called for a Zoe presidency.

Zoe For President is a campaign from the National YMCA to talk about real issues facing Americans today—like the achievement gap, safe spaces, and healthy living—and her voice is definitely being heard, even if you can’t exactly make out what she’s saying.

Deadpool Comes Early

Deadpool is not ashamed to say that he came early. In fact he is happy to admit it. I hope you weren’t thinking we are making any innuendos. We are talking about his film. Get your minds out of the gutter and download the film. No in the privacy of your own home you can witness the origin story of Wade Wilson, who adopts the alter ego Deadpool after a rogue experiment leaves him with accelerated healing powers…and a dark, twisted sense of humor.

Guess Who Shows Up In Latest X-Men Trailer

Brian Singer returns to direct this latest installment of the X-Men franchise. His last outing with the mutant crew was the excellent “Days of Future Past” which brought the crew back together to change history, and thus opening a path for all new storylines and character development.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

I love who shows up in the end!
