Why Does Peyton Manning Keep Shouting ‘Omaha’ During the Game? [VIDEO]
Future Hall of Fame Quarterback Peyton Manning has people asking, ‘what’s the deal with the Omaha shouts during the game?’ Over and over, enough to drive anyone crazy!
Even though it would make for a fantastic drinking game, if your buds were over. They weren’t and the shouts began to feel like nails on a chalk board. You know the opposing players must have felt the same way! Estimates say it was said 44 times as some kind of team secret code!
I found myself wanting to mute the audio. But, how can anyone watch a game in silence? Pass. I thought for sure I’d hear ‘Omaha’ in my nightmares. But, it’s a dream come true for the Nebraska city. All that free publicity!
What’s next? More specific plugs, like, Omaha… Steaks.. free shipping. Next play, Omaha… college word series… book today. And this… Omaha… eat corn! Oh, the potential. Omaha.
The shouts could also be used for betting, if it’s not already happening. Especially, if he makes it to the Super Bowl. Sure, there could be a line of say 40. Will there be more or less than 40 ‘Omaha’ shouts? I see people betting on it. That is, if the Manning and the Broncos get past Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game Sunday.
Here’s something to look out for and perhaps a reason to cheer for the Patriots, a local shout for the land of Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. Yes, Tom Brady has been known to pull his bet Peyton impersonation with shouts for ‘Alabama‘ before the play starts. We could have a historic battle of QB shouts this weekend! Haha.
