First black GM in the NHL.

That's really cool for the family, especially their parents. Two kids who became GMs in two different sports, wouldn't be shocked if that is also a first. Hope there isn't a 3rd brother or sibling who works at Applebee's. Those Thanksgiving dinners would suck.

While searching for brother combos in sports came across this nugget....

Jackie Robinson had an older brother named Mack who was a track and field athlete.  Mack won a silver medal in the 1936 Olympics 200 meter sprint.  Losing out by only 0.4 seconds to Jessie Owens.

Cooper was really talented too, he just got injured and that was it. Still sucks for him though.

He looks a lot like his brother Chris. Funny how he ended up playing professional hockey when Dad was part of the NFL.

Cooper Manning may have been the best of all three Manning brothers.  But because of his freak injury that ended his football career, we will never know.
