Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has joined Twitter.

Manning, who just retired after this past season, posted his first-ever tweet Saturday by posting a GIF from “Hoosiers.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The two-time Super Bowl champion wrote, “To paraphrase Jimmy Chitwood, ‘I don’t know if it’ll make any change, but I figure it’s time for me to start playing social media.'”

I’m all-in on Eli Manning joining Twitter. I’m all-in if this is the kind of content he’s bringing to the table.

In terms of your first-ever tweet, you simply can’t go wrong with dropping a reference from “Hoosiers.”

We’re talking about one of the greatest sports movies ever made, and something tells me Eli Manning is a big Jimmy Chitwood fan.

Those two would certainly have gotten along in the locker room. I have no doubts about that at all.

Either way, welcome to Twitter, Eli! I can already tell we’re in for a hell of a fun time. Keep the sports movies references coming!
