Retired New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, a two-time Super Bowl champion and big-game MVP, has had many a thrill in his sports career and just experienced another one — drinking from the NHL’s Stanley Cup.
This past week, former two-time Stanley Cup winner Brad Richards stopped by to play bartender for Eli, serving him a beer out of the most celebrated piece of hardware in professional sports.

You certainly can’t do that with the Lombardi Trophy.
Richards and Manning overlapped in New York from 2011-2014 when Richards played for the New York Rangers. Richards won the Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004 and the Chicago Blackhawks in 2015.
Manning did a pretty good job of keeping the spillage to a minimum and showed he still has some athleticism left, dropping his hips to stay below the drink. That’s just good form.
After he finished Manning let out a celebratory “Woo!”
