Thibodaux, LA – Peyton Manning displayed his patented walk of shame to eager camp goers who were desperate to learn all they could from the future hall of fame quarterback.
Every summer, kids from all over the country flock to Thibodaux to learn from the Mannings about the art of reading defenses, running routs, and somberly shuffling back to the bench after throwing a pick-six.
The 5-time MVP explained to the kids:
What you wanna do is slump your shoulders, bow your head, and let your shattered confidence and broken dreams guide you to the loneliest spot on the bench…you really need to absorb all the shame and guilt you can…just feel the disappointment radiating into your dejected husk as you head for the sideline.
Kids could be seen practicing this technique for hours. Dozens of future quarterbacks worked tirelessly on internalizing failure and displaying self-pity. Next week, they’re going to try it in pads.
