Sarah Michelle Gellar Is Just Another Creepy, Overzealous Giants Fan

Buffy the Vampire Slayer was born and raised in New York City, and when she was young, her family had Giants season tickets. Last night, she and Eli Manning were both guests on The Late Show With David Letterman. But, as Gellar explained to Letterman, she didn't get to meet the two-time Super Bowl MVP backstage:

"No, his security wouldn't let me near him. It was weird," said Gellar. "I was trying. I was like, 'No really, I'm just a big fan.' I think that's where I went wrong."


In the next breath, Gellar tried to make a funny about wanting Eli's autograph and "a lock of his hair," but the damage had already been done. To Eli's button men, Mrs. Freddie Prinze Jr. might as well be Betty from Bayonne.
