    From the AP story about Eli Manning ripping Tiki a new cornhole:

    Manning's father, Archie, said at a charity bowling event in Indianapolis for his other son, Super Bowl MVP Peyton, that he had not counseled the Giants quarterback on how to handle the situation.

    Yeah, like this is the first time anyone forgot about Cooper ... the Jan Brady of the NFL. :D

    As someone who grew up with two brothers who were very successful in sports, while I was good but not great, I can relate to Cooper's plight.

    Plus, we were at Ole Miss at the same time.

    Great story on what happened to Cooper from 2004 in the St. Petersburg Times: http://www.sptimes.com/2004/11/07/Sports/The_other_Manning.shtml

    Having heard Archie pronounce it many times, I'm not sure it's possible to come up with an entirely accurate phonetic spelling. Cupper is pretty close, though.

    Like Cookie, with a purr.

    Yeah, I can't spell it either.

    Cupper used to have a radio show on WWL in NOLA. Can't remember if it was on his show or in other interviews on WWL, but he was really bitter when Peyton lost the Heisman and hid it naught a bit.

    .... which, by the way, is pronounced "Miss-sippy" by legions of Southerners.
