Eli Manning received a 40-second standing ovation at Tuesday night’s Giants Town Hall at the Beacon Theatre.

Manning, 38, well known for being an entertaining storyteller and prankster, shared some gems for the adoring fans.

He said he played one of his favorite pranks in his career on Andre Woodson, a rookie sixth-round QB picked out of Kentucky in 2008.

Woodson showed up late to a voluntary OTA and missed the quarterback meeting. So Manning excused himself to the bathroom and cleared out Woodson’s locker, grabbed a piece of Giants stationary and wrote “come meet me in my office, bring your playbook - TC” (as in Tom Coughlin).

The prank worked so well that Woodson brought the paper to Manning and asked him what to do. Manning said I guess you should go upstairs and apologize. But when Woodson actually began walking up the stairs toward Coughlin’s office, Manning raced and grabbed his new teammate and told him it was all a gag.
