It has been nearly 10 years since Eli Manning was drafted by the San Diego Chargers and basically forced the team to trade him to the New York Giants. A decade is not nearly enough time to make fans forget, as we saw on Sunday when Chargers fans created a hilarious cardboard cutout that depicted Manning as a woman.
Last week, Manning said he could not remember why he was opposed to playing in San Diego and complimented the city. Not surprisingly, that didn’t make the fans hate the two-time Super Bowl champion any less. Here’s a more terrifying angle of Eli Manning the pretty blonde:

Sports Grid’s Rick Chandler thinks the cutout was made to look like Marilyn Monroe. I can see that. The mole certainly completes the signature look.
