Super Bowl Sunday is three days away.  The Denver Broncos will face off against the Seattle Seahawks and I couldn’t be more thrilled that my favorite player Peyton Manning will have a shot at another Super Bowl ring.  These are eight things you might not know about Denver’s quarterback Peyton Manning.

1.  Every summer, he runs the Manning Passing Academy, a camp for young football players.

2.  When he played for the Indianapolis Colts, one of Peyton’s nicknames was R2D2. (from Star Wars)

3.  As a thank you for his charitable work, the St. Vincent Children’s Hospital in Indianopolis was renamed after him.

4.  Not all of his friends are football players.  He’s good friends with country singer Kenny Chesney and basketball Hall of Fame player Reggie Miller.

5.  During the NFL season, he talks with his brother Eli (QB for the Giants) every Thursday.

6. After New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina, Manning donated 30,000 pounds of necessities, like diapers, pillows and water.

7.  He’s written several books, including the children’s book “Family Huddle.”

8.  Manning’s charitable organization is called the  Peyback Foundation and helps kids in Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana.

Many thought after his neck surgery and a year off that Manning would never be good again.  Boy has he  proven them wrong and a Super Bowl win this Sunday will hopefully silence his critics once and for all.  Go Broncos!
