NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Eli Manning guest hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and the Giants’ quarterback thanked New Yorkers for the team’s Super Bowl celebration parade.
“New York fans have been great to us,” Manning said in his opening monologue. “We had a parade downtown and now we don’t know where our Super Bowl trophy is!”
Manning said that he grew up in New Orleans and went to school in Mississippi, but now he feels like a real New Yorker. And he offered some sightseeing advice to tourists.
“New York has so many great neighborhoods,” Manning remarked. “SoHo, NoHo, BeBo, J-Lo! You’ve got to explore them all! What’s Bebo? Fugheddaboudit!”
Manning, of course, led the Giants to victory over the Patriots in Super Bowls 42 and 46.
