"Maybe I Need To Lie Down...."
When Eli Manning got his forehead crushed in the exhibition opener, all I could think about was the epic SNL skit "Massive Headwound Harry."
I don't know where the writers got the idea of a guy who just goes to parties, semi-oblivious to the horrors of a massive and untreated headwound, but it worked.
Meanwhile Eli, who looks dopey on a good day, looked even more dopey while shuffling off the field with a Saw V caliber wound gracing his noggin.
Do you think they charged him for staining the new faux-carpet at the billion-dollar-plus stadium. "Hey, pick up that blood!"
FOOTNOTE: Somebody pointed out that Eli's forehead gash was reminiscent of another great Giants QB, Y.A. Tittle. Balder, and with less blood, but not a bad get.
