The jerseys gone into space

What does Eli Manning and Craig Biggio have in common besides football? Their jerseys are headed for space in Space Shuttle Discovery's liftoff on Saturday. The jersey worn by Manning in the super bowl victory over New England and Biggio's jersey he wore in his last game with the Houston Astros are making history. Also taken along with those two jerseys was a Tour de France yellow jersey worn by Lance Armstrong.

The astronauts will take a picture of Manning's jersey and then store it until their return. They will give it back to Eli at a Giant's practice this summer.
