Audibles Won't Stop Charity Effort

Something seemed to be missing from the Super Bowl Sunday night. If Peyton Manning used his "Omaha, Omaha!" snap count, no one heard it. The change will not impact a local Broncos-themed charity effort.

Seventeen Omaha companies had signed up to donate a combined $1,700 every time Manning shouted "Omaha" during the game.

"With the rambunctious crowd, the audibles were tough to hear," reads a press release from the Greater Omaha Chamber.

Even though the audibles didn't come over the airwaves, the 17 companies participating agreed to donate a collective $42,500 dollars anyways.

That will be added to money pledged for an earlier game. The grand total is $67,300. The money goes to Peyton Manning’s “PeyBack Foundation.”

As the Chamber release points out, it's "at least one highlight for the Bronco’s QB after an otherwise rough Super Bowl Sunday."
