The Eternal Face of the NFL Proves Himself Again

This guy is the definition of a true legend. An amazing human being. A leader. A role model. A champion. The list goes on and on, and he is the obvious face of the NFL. If the NFL were to ever change the name of the Super Bowl trophy, his name would be the best fit.
Yea that’s right, 4 time MVP, Peyton Manning. He holds so many awards and records on the field, but most people aren’t aware of what he does off the field.
In the past, he established the Peyback Foundation to help disadvantaged children in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Indiana. The St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis renamed its children’s hospital to “Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent”.
Today, Peyton Manning is on a USO tour in Europe, visiting our troops serving overseas.
Manning is part of a group of athletes, coaches and musicians on tour with Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. James Winnefeld. He traveled with Colts coach Christensen and Colts WR Austin Collie to the Walter Reed Bethesda MATC which is a foundation for our wounded warriors.
The only bad things you can say about the guy is that he has a bad playoff record and he abuses kids on SNL.
