With his son and New York Giants quarterback Eli listening in the background, football legend Archie Manning delivers his remarks Tuesday during a special Manning Day at the Mississippi Legislature in Jackson. Senators passed a resolution honoring Archie, wife Olivia and sons Eli, Peyton and Cooper for their service to the state over the years. Archie and Eli, both of whom starred at Ole Miss before playing pro ball, represented the family in Jackson. Peyton, said Archie, was in Florida playing golf with Tiger Woods. OPT TRIM “I got a text message this morning that said, ‘(Woods) just birdied the first hole,’” Archie told the senators. “About 15 minutes later I got another one that said, ‘He just birdied the second hole.’ I texted back that he was just lucky.”
