After Peyton Manning and the Broncos topped the Chargers, 24-17, on Sunday to advance to the AFC championship, reporters in Denver asked the quarterback about a report that his future on the gridiron could be determined by an offseason exam on his surgically-repaired neck.
"You know, what's weighing on my mind is how soon I can get a Bud Light in my mouth," Manning said. Well played, Peyton. I think we all could go for a cold one right anout now.
I wish at that very moment someone tossed him a cold one, just like Stone Cold Steve Austin used to get cans of Coors Lights tossed to him in the ring back when he was wrestling.
Bud Light was undoubtedly happy about the free promotion tweeted their appreciation, as did Omaha's official tourism bureau, who also sent out a tweet after getting an uncountable number of shout outs at the line of scrimmage by Manning.
Next up, Peyton and the Broncos will host the Patriots on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. ET with a trip to Super Bowl XLVIII on the line.
