Time to make the donuts. Make sure that's on Coughlin time, too.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning surprised customers when he took the counter at a local Dunkin' Donuts in Secaucus Tuesday morning, serving up coffee and breakfast to shocked buyers.
Manning's second job kicked off a partnership between the donut chain and the two-time Super Bowl MVP. Manning will now appear in a series of advertisements and promotions in the New York Metro Area over the next few years.
"Dunkin' Donuts has been part of my daily routine for many years, so I'm really looking forward to working with the brand," said Manning. "Dunkin' Donuts and the Giants are both well known for their passionate fans. This partnership is sure to keep people in the New York Tri-state area running on Dunkin' all year long."
But don't worry, Giants fans; your quarterback won't be leaving his day job anytime soon.
"The offseason is a time to try to get some things done and do some things you want to do, like Saturday Night Live and those type of opportunities, as long as it doesn't affect my preparation for football and my commitment to the Giants," Manning said, according to New York Daily News.
"I didn't miss a single workout this year, was at every team activity and working hard to make sure I'm getting better," he added. "But also tried to do some things outside of football and keep busy and have some fun."
