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."
