Omaha! Omaha! For each of Peyton's Omaha calls Sunday, $500 will go to charity
Peyton "explained" it to the media the other day...but not really. "...uh, 'Omaha' is a run play. But it could be a pass play or a lpay-action pass, depending on a couple of things. Wind. Which way we're going, and, uh, the jersey's that we're wearing..."
The jerseys they're wearing? Okay, Peyton.
Oh well, we really don't need to know what it means or why he calls it. "Omaha" will make some good money this weekend for Manning's Peyback Foundation for at-risk kids this weekend. Apparently some Omaha-based companies have pledged to donate $500 to charity for each time the word comes out of Peyton's mouth against the Patriots on Sunday. In the Divisional Round game last weekend against the Chargers, Manning yelled "Omaha" 44 times - that would have been $22,000.
Any takers on how many times he says it this weekend?
