In a viral video taken at the Quays pub in Temple Bar, retired quarterback Peyton Manning decided to show off his singing abilities. Or lack there of. Manning took to the microphone to sing along with a version of country legend Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues." The former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos man had apparently been in Ireland to play some golf.
As the Balls.ie report notes, it looks as though Manning could use some help with his singing on the mic skills. While Broncos Wire added that Manning clearly has a favorite genre of music having already joined Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan on stage in the past.
Manning, 41, a noted golf enthusiast, had recently spoken about his experience in playing golf with President Donald Trump. Manning told Jimmy Kimmel that the president didn't cheat during their game. The retired quarterback added that he thought it would be unAmerican to turn down the president's invitation to play. Manning added that he would have played President Obama if he had been asked.
One of Manning's former teammates, Pat McAfee, told Bleacher Report that Manning would make an ideal choice for president. McAfee said, "If he was to become a politician, I assume he’d be incredible at it. He’s a leader, a tireless worker, and a fabulous communicator. I don’t know much about politics, but I think if you have those three traits, you have a chance of being a real world-changer. I hope he gets into it someday; would be great for our country."
Manning's trip to Ireland for a golf game coincides with the president's son, Eric, 33, also arriving. The Limerick Leader reported that Eric Trump arrived on July 26 with a golfing party. Since Donald Trump took office, Eric Trump and his brother, Donald Junior, have been running the family business. That would include the Trump golf course in Doonbeg, County Clare.
While most Manning fans will already remember what a fan he is of all things Irish. In January 2010 a video emerged showing Manning, then with the Colts, using a "rare form of Gaelic" in order to confuse opposing players while calling plays.
