Peyton Manning takes hilarious shots at Tom Brady during video chat for ‘The Match’
The official date and location for the upcoming charity golf event featuring Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning was announced on Thursday, and the two teams have wasted no time trading smack talk. If quality of trash talk is any indication of how “The Match” is going to go, Brady and Phil may be in trouble.
The four sports legends got together on Thursday for a video chat to promote the event with TNT’s Ernie Johnson. Manning, who is partnering with Woods against Brady and Mickelson, really gave it to his former on-field rival. He mocked Brady over his embarrassing accidental trespass situation and jokingly complained that the golf match is being held in Florida, where Brady now lives. Manning said he would have preferred to have the match somewhere where Brady is disliked, and he cited Boston as one of those places.
“Maybe this is considered a neutral site,” Manning said. “I would have loved to have had this tournament in a place where they don’t like Tom very much — Indianapolis, Denver, Boston after he just betrayed them and broke their hearts…”
Manning also joked that Brady and Mickelson have 11 championships combined, whereas Manning and Woods have 17. Tiger accounts for most of those, of course, with his 15 major championships. Here’s the full video:

Tiger and Phil also traded some great barbs during the segment:
Phil came out talking trash, but Tiger had the green jacket ready

The match is being held at The Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla., on Sunday, May 24. It will be simulcast on TNT, TBS, truTV and HLN. Woods and Mickelson brought us some awesome moments when they squared off in “The Match” two years ago, and the sequel is sure to be better than the original.
