In our weekly "Love Of The Game" series, HuffPost Black Voices talks sports with a person of note. This week we caught up with singer-actress Naturi Naughton, as she shares her thoughts on Peyton Manning’s emotional departure from the Indianapolis Colts.

"During the whole emotional press conference about him not playing for the Colts anymore, I was like, ‘Man!’ You never see too many football players cry, but actually they really get emotional because it’s so much a part of who they are in their hearts. And I admire that kind of passion for the game, the same way how I’m passionate for my career. I would be in tears to if I worked for somebody for 14 years and I had to leave."
