Eli Manning Gets A Little Super Bowl Magic — From Magician David Blaine

By January 30, 2012

David BlaineIf Eli Manning hopes to lead his New York Giants to another Super Bowl victory, he's going to need more than a little magic -- but that isn't stopping a New York magician from showing him some anyway.

David Blaine, the "street magic" artist known for his feats of endurance, recently tried to show Manning a card trick as he taped a new special for TLC -- but it turned out the trick wasn't in the cards.

As the trick unfolded, not only did Blaine know which cards Manning had picked -- but he also managed to steal the quarterback's watch, according to the Huffington Post.

Manning made an estimated $26.5 million in salary and endorsements last year... so he can afford a new watch.

Another Vince Lombardi Trophy, on the other hand, would be priceless.
