Peyton Manning: A Real Class Act

Peyton Manning stopped to sign T-shirts and autographs on his way out of MetLife Stadium Sunday night. A beer vendor was one who received an example of Manning's largesse."
After everything that happened, Peyton Manning kept stopping in the MetLife hallway and honoring requests for his time, no matter how fresh the wound, no matter how pronounced the pressure, no matter how desperately he just wanted to get on the bus, assume his customary place up front and get the hell out of Jersey.

"The respect he always has for the fans, that's why I like him," Lopez said. "That's why I asked, that's his reputation. I like the way he keeps his emotions out of the public."
And on top of that, Manning also took the time to inquire about Richard Sherman's injury.
“He was really concerned about my well-being,” Sherman said. “After a game like that, a guy who’s still classy enough to say ‘How are you doing?’ To show that kind of concern for an opponent shows a lot of humility and class.”

His daddy was a very nice guy. Still is, as far as I know.
