Late Night Top Ten

For the past seven years, the Super Bowl MVP has made an appearance on David Letterman’s show the Monday after the big game. Tonight will be no different as Eli Manning becomes the eighth consecutive quarterback to visit Letterman as a World Champion. When Aaron Rodgers stopped by the Ed Sullivan Theater last year, Dan and I were seated in the second row. (Proof below. And even though you cannot actually see me, I am there. Near that arrow. Trust me.)

I've wanted to see the show for quite a few years, but getting tickets is no easy task. There are standby tickets available, but since I have a 9-5 job, hanging out by the theater isn't a possibilty. Instead, I opted for filling out the online form.  About six months later, I received a call back from the show.  That was part one - just because you get a call doesn’t mean you are guaranteed tickets. To be put on a guest list, you have to correctly answer a trivia question about the show.  Talk about pressure!  Thank goodness I knew my Letterman trivia!

Being in the audience was one of the cooler things I have done in NYC. For any of my readers who plan on visiting the Big Apple, I’d highly recommend trying to see a taping of Letterman’s show.
