Peyton and Eli Manning’s “Monday Night Football” show has a star-studded guest list every week, and this Monday was no different. After joining Al Michaels for the first time on Sunday Night Football, Phil Mickelson showed off his own soccer skills – and trash-talking skills – in the second quarter.

Michaels joined the show late in the first quarter, and one of the highlights – or lowlights from Michaels’ perspective – of his appearance was his golf shots.

In the second quarter came a guy who is a little better at golf: Mickelson, whose background will be hard to beat: the Wanamaker Trophy from his PGA championship triumph in 2021.

Mickelson, freshly won at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship on the Champions Tour, won’t play next weekend for one simple reason: He believes in the ManningCast curse.

Every known player who appeared on ManningCast lost the following week, so Mickelson isn’t going to risk it.

The 45-time PGA Tour winner had obviously prepared well and asked many insightful questions to Peyton and Eli. But when it came to Eli’s golf swing, Mickelson made sure everyone knew he was the expert – and he can talk some rubbish too.

Golden State Warriors striker Draymond Green arrived shortly after halftime as the third guest on the show.
