Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning prepares for a snap in a 2012 game. Gov. John Hickenlooper honored Manning and his teammates recently by naming mountains within the Colorado 14ers after players on the roster. The temporary name changes will be in effect only for Super Bowl Sunday, when the AFC Championship team will play the Seattle Seahawks.
