At least Tom Brady is a good sport, even when it comes to referencing his most painful loss as a pro football quarterback.
Brady, who won six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots., had a humorous welcome for Eli Manning when the retired New York Giants quarterback opened a Twitter account.
Manning referenced the movie “Hoosiers” with his first post, tweeting “To paraphrase Jimmy Chitwood, ‘I don’t know if it’ll make any change, but I figure it’s time for me to start playing social media.’"

Manning led the Giants to a pair of Super Bowl victories against the Patriots, including a late comeback in Super Bowl XLII. Manning’s fourth-quarter rally led the Giants to a 17-14 victory, spoiling New England’s bid for a perfect season. Four years later, Manning led the Giants to a 21-17 win against the Patriots. Manning was the MVP in both games.
Brady. poking fun at Manning’s late arrival on the social media platform, tweeted “In typical fashion, you never showed up until the 4th quarter anyway.”
