Passengers headed to Omaha, Neb., through Denver International Airport may be out of luck for the next couple days, as it appears their flights have instead been re-routed to "Omaha!" As in, "Omaha! Omaha! Omaha!"
The move is an apparent nod to Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who made a name for himself this season by repeatedly yelling the midwestern city's name as a secret signal while at the line of scrimmage. In homage, airport officials have taken the liberty of "correcting" the city's spelling on signage throughout the airport, tacking on an exclamation mark.

Denver International has also started some friendly smack talk with Super Bowl XLVIII rival Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, engaging in a bet to fly the flag of the winning Super Bowl team in public for 24 hours.
