So it’s about 20 minutes before kickoff and you’re settling into your recliner. The hype begins for a CBS intro or commercial and — while watching with one eye, you see Peyton Manning.
Of course, you stop as usually anything the retired quarterback does on TV is hilarious. At about a minute in, you’re waiting for the punch line, the wrap and then you realize this is extended — whatever it is.
At around 1:20 (80 seconds) in, you hear the football legend — in full snark mode — reply, “No, Rome, Ga.”
Even friends living on Florida’s Space Coast were tweeting immediately. “I just saw a Peyton Manning commercial that ditzed Rome, Ga.,” wrote Doug from Titusville.
So how many other millions heard it?
Watch it for yourself now by clicking the above YouTube video. The magic words are just around the 1:20 minute mark but play the whole thing. Worth it.
