Why a city in Nebraska really appreciates Peyton Manning
If you’ve watched a Denver Broncos game on TV this year (with the sound on) you know that Peyton Manning likes to yell Omaha! a lot before taking the snap from center.
That call-out hasn’t been missed by the fine folks in Omaha, Nebraska.
The city’s official tourism twitter feed sent out the following tweet during Denver’s victory over the Chargers on Sunday:

Manning and the Broncos will host Tom Brady and the Patriots next Sunday in the AFC Championship Game. Expect to hear a lot of Omaha! mentions during the showdown.
Thanks to Peyton Manning, Omaha has a moment in NFL and Twitter spotlight. http://t.co/O1C1XuNyfF

I wonder if Peyton Manning will eventually retire with a home in Omaha

As many times as Peyton Manning has yelled out "Omaha Omaha" you would think the city of Omaha would name a street after him by now.

Oh, and was Peyton happy after Sunday’s win? Yes, he was downright giddy about it (hit the microphone button in the upper left of the Vine video below to hear from Manning).
