John Elway last played in 1998, which was like a really, really long time ago. Don’t tell the Columbus Dispatch that, though.

Actually, you should definitely tell them that, because they apparently missed that memo. The Ohio newspaper made a whoopsie Thursday night and into Friday morning when it was throwing together the morning edition.

You see, the Denver Broncos played football Thursday evening, and their quarterback, Peyton Manning, threw 7 touchdown passes. That’s more than enough to get his name in the paper.

The only problem? The Dispatch got their Denver quarterbacks mixed up. Instead of a headline reading “Manning throws seven touchdown passes,” a headline for the Broncos’ 49-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens instead read “Elway throws seven touchdown passes.”

D’oh! See below . . .
