Peyton Manning details unreal Bill Belichick-Pamela Anderson Pro Bowl story
The “Manningcast” has become one of the premier destinations for NFL storytime, and Monday’s installment was no different.
When speaking with guest Bill Simmons and brother Eli Manning on ESPN’s alternative “Monday Night Football” broadcast, Peyton Manning relayed a past Pro Bowl story involving Bill Belichick’s apparent scheme to get a certain long snapper to bring his then-girlfriend, Pamela Anderson, to the annual NFL showcase in Hawaii.
“Another time, he picked David Binn, who was a long snapper, because he was dating Pamela Anderson, and Bill thought the players would like seeing Pamela at the pool in Hawaii — she didn’t come, but that’s a cool Belichick story,” Peyton shared.
In a video unearthed by NFL reporter Dov Kleiman, Binn — who was elected to the 2006 Pro Bowl — recounted his series of events during an appearance on the “Pro Football Doc Podcast.”
“First practice, which is like nothing, you just kind of like stretch, mess around a little bit and walk off the field. I’m coming off and I’m walking by Bill, and he looks at me and he’s like, ‘Hey, where’s your girlfriend?’ I said, ‘Oh, Pam? She didn’t come out.’ He goes, ‘Remind me why the f–k I invited you out here then?’” Binn said.
Binn, who reportedly dated the “Baywatch” star in 2007 and 2008, recalled Belichick giving him “this deadpan look” over his Anderson-less response.
“I thought he was kidding, but he didn’t crack a smile, and then I was like, ‘Wait, is he serious?’” Binn said. “I just walked off, I couldn’t figure it out.”
When asked on the podcast if he said anything back to Belichick, Binn responded, “I think I just laughed it off, and I was like, ‘Wait, he really wanted me to bring Pam. S–t, should I call her right now?’”
Binn played for the Chargers from 1994 through 2010. He also had a brief stint with the Broncos in early 2012.
