Two of the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks are set to face each other once again as they take their wares in the fairway for “The Match: Champions for Charity.” The event aims to raise funds for those affected by the Covid-19 crisis. It will be an offshoot of the highly-anticipated event in 2018 featuring Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
“Champions for Charity” will be a two-versus-two event, with Brady teaming up with Mickelson, while Manning joins forces with Woods.
It will be the first time in four years that the two NFL greats go head-to-head in a competitive matchup. Brady could not hold his excitement in anticipation of seeing his longtime adversary shortly after the event was announced.
“I’ve been waiting 4 years to get a rematch with Peyton…expecting a better result this time around…”
Brady, of course, was referring to the AFC Championship Game wherein Manning’s Broncos toppled the Patriots, 20-18. The boys in orange would go all the way and take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the third time in franchise history.
Manning retired after his Super Bowl triumph, while Brady is set to kick off his 21st campaign with the Buccaneers.
Brady would up his Twitter game and continued to take jabs at Manning and Tiger Woods.
“Never had much of a hard time beating the colts or a tiger, don’t see this time being much different…”
Manning has no Twitter account, but it is safe to say that the rest of the sports world is eagerly awaiting The Sheriff’s response once match day comes.
The playing date for “The Match: Champions for Charity” has yet to be determined, although it will occur in May.
