OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Peyton Manning came to Omaha to show the city some love in return for the love it showed him during the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl.

Manning was the featured speaker at the B'nai B'rith sports banquet Thursday night. He promised the crowd of 1,200 he'll keep shouting "Omaha!" at the line of scrimmage, just as he famously did during the Denver Broncos' run to the Super Bowl.

Before the banquet, the Omaha Chamber of Commerce presented a check for almost $70,000 to Manning's foundation. Local businesses donated for every pre-snap "Omaha!" Manning shouted.

Manning said he's received suggestions from other cities, states, businesses and websites urging him to call their names at the line.

Manning said, "I am here to tell you I am sticking with Omaha."
