MANNING-LETTERMAN

NEW YORK (AP) -- No sibling rivalry between the Manning boys. At least that's what Eli Manning tells David Letterman. Eli now has two Super Bowl rings, to big brother Peyton's one. Eli and his New York Giants beat the New England Patriots Sunday in the big game. It was Eli's second Super Bowl victory with the Giants and the team's fourth overall. Letterman wants to know how long it will before Eli starts teasing his brother. Eli says "never." Letterman's advice: give it a week then go to work on the guy.

SUPER BOWL-NYC SHOPPERS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Stu Miller figures his wife just might kill him. That's because of all the New York Giants stuff he's been buying. He snapped up three Super Bowl T-shirts and was thinking about a Giants blanket and another shirt. Miller was one of the fans who crowded into Modell's in New York's Times Square. The manager predicts a huge foam hand with four extended fingers will be a big seller. The fingers, of course, are for the Giants four Super Bowl victories.

CLEANING SPRAY-SELF DEFENSE

According to police in West Valley City, a man with a gun walked into the kitchen at El Calor Taqueria. He demanded money.

MILK JUG IGLOO

PAXTON, Neb. (AP) -- School kids in Paxton, Nebraska, are chillin'. They're learning about life in the Arctic with an igloo built out of plastic milk jugs. They're also getting some tips on recycling. KNOP-TV reports the kids have constructed a 6-by-10 foot igloo out of 700 jugs. It's the idea of librarian Jody Storer. But this igloo won't have to stand up to Arctic winds or snow. It's in the school library.
