Peyton Manning says he doesn’t feel pressure to win football games. Asked the most pressure he’s ever felt in his life, he says that in eighth grade, he wanted to get out of computer class and switch to musical theater. After he switched, he learned that everybody in the class had to perform in a play. Suddenly computer looked good, but the school wouldn’t let him switch again.
He appeared in "The Boyfriend," and in one scene he was forced to dance the tango. He wore black pants, a ruffled red tuxedo shirt and a yellow cummerbund. He didn’t mind performing Friday in front of the school.
But Saturday, he had to perform in front of his family. His two brothers would be there.
"That was pressure," says Manning. "But I did it. I studied up."
He adds: "There’s video, but don’t look for it. It’s deep in the Manning vault I assure you."
