We've all been given nicknames in our lives, some which have stuck by with us and will continue to do so for the majority, if not for the rest of our lives.
There have, however, been unwanted nicknames which we've all been given and wish to be forgotten about as quickly as is possible. And that can be the case for NFL quarterbacks, too.
According to CBS Sports, Eli Manning was given a rather unfortunate and unflattering nickname of "Penguin Boy", by FOX Sports' closed-captioning team.

As CBS Sports noted: "Closed captioning is a pretty remarkable invention. But it's not always perfect... Sometimes it's better than perfect".
The error, and 'new nickname,' was spotted during the New York Giants' trip to FedEx Field to face the Washington Redskins in a NFC East divisional game, which the Giants ultimately lost 20-14 and top spot of the division.
Eli Manning threw three inceptions and was sacked three times on Sunday evening, making the whole day one to forget for the younger brother of Peyton.
The Giants never got into gear until it was too late. In fact, it wasn't until the fourth quarter when Eli 'Penguin Boy' Manning linked up with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. who made a ridiculous catch, that Big Blue showed any signs of life.
Manning is a great quarterback in his own right, holding numerous records for the New York Giants franchise as well as the NFL itself, whilst being a two-time SuperBowl and MVP winner.
However, with his latest nickname, fans of the Giants will be hoping he can help dance the Giants into the playoffs and waddle through to SuperBowl 50 in February.
