Early in the new year, we have a celebrity birthday during the "Frog Days of Winter". Today's it's New York Giants Quarterback, number 10, Eli Manning celebrating his 31st birthday, and over the weekend, Eli got a great birthday gift, clinching the NFC East and now heading to the playoffs.

Obviously, Eli is having a better year than his injured brother Payton on the sidelines with the Indianopolis Colts. Eli Manning comes from a very famous NFL family. Here's a brief bio, courtesy of Wikipedia:

"Eli Nelson Manning (born Elisha Nelson Manning on January 3, 1981) is an American football quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He is the younger brother of NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning. He played college football at University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) after attending prep school at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. He was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers, and immediately traded to the New York Giants, who in return, gave up a package highlighted by 4th overall selection Philip Rivers. Manning won the Most Valuable Player award in Super Bowl XLII on February 3, 2008 after he led the Giants to a victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots."
