Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning might not be under contract with Budweiser, but the Super Bowl 50 winner’s plans to celebrate his victory with "a lot of" Budweiser went over very well with some fellow Denver-area athletes: the Colorado Avalanche. 

A handful of Avalanche players took to Twitter in the aftermath of the Broncos’ win over the Carolina Panthers Sunday, and the Avs’ biggest interest seemed to be in what Manning and Co. planned to do to celebrate. Centers John Mitchell and Matt Duchene both showed their support of kicking back with some teammates and a few beers. 

Meanwhile, captain Gabriel Landeskog was most concerned with wiping out "the dab", Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s famous celebration dance. Broncos wide receiver Andre Caldwell co-opted the move during the game when he celebrated a 22-yard catch in the first quarter by busting out the dab. 

The Super Bowl was an all-day affair for Landeskog, who was already dressed for the game when he took his dog out earlier in the day. 

Avs players Calvin Pickard and Erik Johnson also celebrated the big win on Twitter with some words of support for the Broncos, although neither player joined in on the debate over Manning’s Budweiser comments or Newton’s dance moves. Johnson made great use of emojis though.
