Five-time NFL MVP and two-time Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning is a class act and unquestionably one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Riding high off his Super Bowl 50 win, he's spent the past few days on quite the victory tour, including stops in Disneyland and Downtown Denver for the Broncos parade. Because it's mostly assumed he'll retire from football, he's been bombarded left and right about his future plans, politely evading questions about when he'll make an announcement.
That's why being on a talk show that focused mostly on getting laughs from him was probably a refreshing breather from the nonstop sports analysis. Last night he visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he traded jabs with Fallon over the comedian's tradition of doling out less-than-favorable superlative awards to football players. The best part of the appearance came later, though, when he squared off against another legend, Magic Johnson, in a game of egg Russian roulette, which, yes, is apparently a thing.
It's pretty straightforward: Fallon opened up a carton of 12 eggs, eight of which were hardboiled and four of which were still raw. Manning and Johnson took turns smashing an egg directly on top of their heads, and the legend who reached two raw eggs first was proclaimed the loser.

This is what you get for winning the Super Bowl, Peyton. Enjoy it.
