The Henry Doorly Zoo's latest star, Peyton the Penguin, named for Denver Broncos' quarterback Peyton Manning, is taking to social media for Sunday's Super Bowl game.
The newborn rockhopper penguin got his name after the city and the Nebraska Tourism Commission took note of Manning's repeated use of "Omaha" at the line of scrimmage. Fans can expect to hear him yell, "Omaha! Omaha!" just as often when the Broncos face the Seattle Seahawks for the NFL championship.
Now, Manning's namesake penguin has become "a bit of a celebrity," according to zoo director Dennis Pate. Zoo officials say Peyton the Penguin is eagerly awaiting the big game and will be posting his thoughts and comments over the next several days.
