Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning shouting “Omaha” this weekend will do a lot for at-risk youth.

According to the Associated Press, Manning’s “Peyback Foundation” will receive a $500 contribution from five Omaha-based companies every time he yells the name of Nebraska’s largest city during the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots.

Manning shouted “Omaha” 44 times during the Broncos’ 24-17 victory over the San Diego Chargers in the Divisional round.

I hate being a killjoy here and certainly Manning can do anything with his money that he wants but contributing to your own charity is a bit, well, tacky.

Thinking about this stuff even affects my ability to communicate!

Good for the charity. but I really. But all Manning's yelling reminds me of the people who yell mashed potatoes at sporting events, jut to hear themselves when they get home and flip on the DVR.

I really believe all the yelling this guy has inspired has cheapened the game.

I'd pay that much to hear him say "Llanfairpwllgwyngyll" just once.
