If you watched the Denver Broncos face off against the New England Patriots yesterday, you may have heard quarterback Peyton Manning calling “Omaha!” Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with Nebraska, and everything to do with charity.
Manning's "Omaha" call became popular following Denver's win over the Chargers in the previous round of the playoffs. Each time Manning shouted "Omaha" prior to a snap yesterday, he picked up 800-dollars for his charity, the Peyback Foundation, which helps at-risk youth.
So aside from punching a ticket for Super Bowl 40, Manning also picked up nearly 25-thousand-dollars for his charity. Eight businesses are combining to donate 24,800-dollars after Manning said the word "Omaha" 31 times during yesterday's AFC Championship Game.
