Peyton Manning is making cupcakes for J.J. Watt with his newfound free time

Monday August 22nd, 2016

Peyton Manning has spent pretty much his entire life being a quarterback, but now that the NFL legend is retired he is going to have a lot of free time on his hands.

A new ad for Manning’s favorite pizza chain shows that the two-time Super Bowl champion has discovered a passion for cupcakes, and that J.J. Watt is reaping the benefits.


It is nice to see that Peyton has found a new passion in cupcake baking and decorating, but it is more important to know that he is not turning his back on his true calling: starring in commercials.
