Manning Story

http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/09/04/man...ief/index.html



BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (CNN) -- The name Manning is legendary in the city of New Orleans for two generations of football greats. Now those hometown heroes are doing what they can to help their friends, family and thousands of their longtime fans recover from Hurricane Katrina.

"The whole town is like family, so it's very much a personal issue," said Peyton Manning, son of longtime New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning.

Peyton, quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, and younger brother Eli, who plays for the New York Giants, mobilized a plane full of relief supplies that were delivered to Baton Rouge on Saturday. Both brothers grew up in Louisiana.

RE: Manning Story

What another great story... a family who didn't have to live there didn't have to become part of the community. Thanks Archie for bring up his family in New Orleans and becoming part of the landscape. Now we have 2 great QB's with big hearts that love the city.
