Saw this excerpt on an ESPN article today:

Clyde Christensen, former Colts assistant coach: "The first time I went to play golf with him up at Trophy Club [in Lebanon, Indiana] he calls while I’m following him and he goes, ‘Will you pick me up because I’m going to leave my car at the gas station here on the way up here.’ He gets in my car and I ask if there’s something wrong with his car. He goes, ‘I’m almost over the miles limit on my lease and if you go over, it’s like 15 cents a mile.’ He was worried about exceeding the miles on what was like a four- or five-mile trip to the course. This is Peyton Manning worried about going over his miles on his lease.

I remember grabbing his ball out of the hole on the first hole and there’s a picture on the ball that says Smith Family Reunion on it. I asked him where he got the ball from and he’s like, ‘You can get these balls cheap because they printed too many for these family reunions.’ He saved money by buying somebody else’s balls because they had leftovers. I told him don’t ever do that again. I said, ‘I promise, if you call Titleist, you can get some free balls.’ Sure enough, the next time we played, he gave me a sleeve of Titleist balls that had the No. 18 on them. Peyton being frugal didn’t change much over the next 11, 12 years. What I loved about him is he’s a simple liver. He keeps it simple despite who he was on the football field."

Great story. Big weekend in Indianapolis.  Peyton's number 18 will be retired and his statue revealed. Very deserving as a player and he did just as much off the field in the community.

Dude needs a better deal with Buick.

I kid.

Seems almost miserly considering the coin he has made.  There's a healthy balance and I'm pretty sure that's not it.

It doesn’t sound like he plays overruns anymore. Sounds like he plays free balls from Titleist. I would totally play free balls from Titleist.

Free balls from Titleist are actually my favorite kind.

Yes. Like Trevino said "The richer/famous you get the more people want to give
you free stuff and when you're poor no one will give you a dime". :)

This reminds me of JJ Watt. Saves his paychecks and still lives in a little apartment playing X-Box. Then puts together and charity and raises $10M to help Hurricane victims.

It's a very fair point, in fact you could argue guys who make that much and spend almost nothing are bad for the economy.

Not that i'm trying bash Manning or anything, he was my favorite player when i watched football. And i'm certainly not a big spender by any means (i've literally owned 3 Toyota Corolla's), but it's not like it does you any good to have it if you never spend it either ....(putting aside what you want to leave for family notwithstanding)

TL:DR - Don't be a stingy ba$t@rd

He and I are about the same age and he was playing at Tennessee when I went to Georgia.  We drove up for an away game and he annihilated us, I've been a fan and had a lot of respect for him ever since.

Just seems like some kind of disconnect, not that I'm being critical.  Being frugal becomes a game to some people, I know because I'm related to a few of them.  It's part of the fabric of the American dream almost.  Hard work, frugality.  How do you think the rich got rich?  I do think it hinders the economy a little when it turns into begrudging others from making a livable wage.  A co-worker chided me for tipping my hairdresser the other day.  The hair dresser is a friend of mine and knows I will walk into a Great Clips just because I don't like to be tied down to an appointment and don't really care that much about how my hair looks (feel lucky to have it at 41).  Anyways, my friend the hairdresser has been hinting that she'd like my business, so I ran into her the other day, she pulled up her phone and said how about 11 tomorrow?  Turns out her salon is across the street from my office, so I couldn't resist.  So, she charges me $25 and a colleague I'm meeting for lunch watches me get two $20's out of my wallet to give her.  He says something along the lines of "you'll go broke tipping like that."  I didn't respond much, but all I could think is that if she could pocket every penny, not pay any overhead, and pack a full 40 hour a week 50 weeks a year calendar of hair cuts she would only make $80k a year.  So, realistically I'm betting she's lucky if she walks with $25k even if she can avoid taxes with a lot of the cash payments.  Hard to live on that little money.  That's not even figuring out the marketing potential for me if she referred just one client to me.  Easy math IMO.  What goes around comes around and all...  ::cool story, bro::

Must've been short of cash from building that children's hospital in Indy. :)

I'm sure he was raised to be frugal. I saw a interview with his dad Archie talking about how he and his wife drove the same car they had in college for a couple years after he got drafted by the Saints.

If it not already apparent, Peyton Manning Children's Hospital on the Northside of Indianapolis is where a fair bit of his money went. It has changed many kids lives in Central Indiana and the MidWest.

Some of you owe Peyton an apology. Many people are thankful every day that he gave back to the community.

Yes indeed, some are frugal in some areas so they have more to spend
in others. Most of us are like this to some degree.

Big, big difference between frugal and cheap.  Playing logo overruns is frugal.  Giving $5 on a $245 meal to someone making minimum wage and dependent on tips to live....cough Tiger cough.....is cheap.

Anyway, is Papa John a golfer?  Seems like Peyton could round up some Papa John logo'ed balls if he was so inclined.  Or Pepsi, or Bud Light, or Nationwide, or DirectTV.

Since when did spending less money become a bad thing?  Do people just never want to retire?

Srixon QStar Tours are $29.95.  If they weren't running a buy 3 get 1 free deal on golfballs.com - the $25.95 for a logo overrun dozen is an absolute steal for that ball.

Also you can be frugal without being cheap - as explained by jmck.

Men's cuts are pocket change to hair dressers. They make the real coin on colorings and various straightening treatments for women who'll pay upwards of $300-400 a whack, and they can stagger things so they can have a couple going at once.

Just seems like some kind of disconnect, not that I'm being critical.  Being frugal becomes a game to some people, I know because I'm related to a few of them.  It's part of the fabric of the American dream almost.  Hard work, frugality.  How do you think the rich got rich?  I do think it hinders the economy a little when it turns into begrudging others from making a livable wage.  A co-worker chided me for tipping my hairdresser the other day.  The hair dresser is a friend of mine and knows I will walk into a Great Clips just because I don't like to be tied down to an appointment and don't really care that much about how my hair looks (feel lucky to have it at 41).  Anyways, my friend the hairdresser has been hinting that she'd like my business, so I ran into her the other day, she pulled up her phone and said how about 11 tomorrow?  Turns out her salon is across the street from my office, so I couldn't resist.  So, she charges me $25 and a colleague I'm meeting for lunch watches me get two $20's out of my wallet to give her.  He says something along the lines of "you'll go broke tipping like that."  I didn't respond much, but all I could think is that if she could pocket every penny, not pay any overhead, and pack a full 40 hour a week 50 weeks a year calendar of hair cuts she would only make $80k a year.  So, realistically I'm betting she's lucky if she walks with $25k even if she can avoid taxes with a lot of the cash payments.  Hard to live on that little money.  That's not even figuring out the marketing potential for me if she referred just one client to me.  Easy math IMO.  What goes around comes around and all...  ::cool story, bro::

Men's cuts are pocket change to hair dressers. They make the real coin on colorings and various straightening treatments for women who'll pay upwards of $300-400 a whack, and they can stagger things so they can have a couple going at once.

Good point, and I agree, my grandmother was a hairdresser.

Doesn't change my point.  She's a friend, trust me.  She appreciated the 15 bucks.

We always overtip friends, as well, especially bartenders who "accidentally" leave a soda or two off of the check.

That's actually stealing from someone, not that I'm judging you.

More of a t** for tat.  I'm familiar as I lived in resort towns for a lot of my life.

He sounds cheap.  I don't deal with cheap well.  It's annoying.

Big, big difference between frugal and cheap.  Playing logo overruns is frugal.  Giving $5 on a $245 meal to someone making minimum wage and dependent on tips to live....cough Tiger cough.....is cheap.

Anyway, is Papa John a golfer?  Seems like Peyton could round up some Papa John logo'ed balls if he was so inclined.  Or Pepsi, or Bud Light, or Nationwide, or DirectTV.

Huge difference between frugal and cheep. We would be criticizing him if he was spending money like crazy on stupid things and broke when he stopped playing football. Even though he has a lot, it's good to see he respects what he has and uses it to help others.

Dude needs a better deal with Buick.

I kid.

Seems almost miserly considering the coin he has made.  There's a healthy balance and I'm pretty sure that's not it.

It's a very fair point, in fact you could argue guys who make that much and spend almost nothing are bad for the economy.

Not that i'm trying bash Manning or anything, he was my favorite player when i watched football. And i'm certainly not a big spender by any means (i've literally owned 3 Toyota Corolla's), but it's not like it does you any good to have it if you never spend it either ....(putting aside what you want to leave for family notwithstanding)

Jeez, what a jerk.  3 Corolla's Jeff?  I mean you don't have to rub our faces in it.

Well, one of them was used.

I splurged on a Buick Encore this time because i wanted AWD. I've never gotten so many catcalls by men thinking i was a soccer mom.

Then they see me and take off disappointed.....I'm like "I didn't say no!"

Buick Encore? Must have been the Tiger effect.

imconfused.   what is this thread about ?


I will buy over runs for practice and social rounds.. although superstition will require a new clean ball for any competition play.,..   and im not cheap at all and am a big tipper for good service , especially at a place ill frequent...   waiters and waitresses love to see my family coming..   ive been slid ahead in the wait line more times than i can count at our regular haunts...  but id be right with him on the lease overage fees... I despise paying "the man"...and that includes bankers, dealership fees and taxes that arent warranted..... like when the county assesor argues with me on my 300 k mile work f150 and tries to say it doesnt qualify for high mileage discount that they advertise ..... I literally stood there for 30 minues while she dug up her boss so i could ask "how does it not qualify"....  he eventually gave in and i got the $30 off.... lol   as Big Worm  said " theres principalities invloved.... playing with my money is like playing with my emotions... " ...lol
