Peyton Manning To Welcome Travelers To Denver As Holiday Voice Of DIA Train Cars
Well, they’ll at least hear his voice welcoming them on the airport trains at DIA.
Normally the greeting is recorded by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, but he has given the duty to Manning to help spur support for a Broncos Super Bowl run and celebrate the team’s AFC West division title.
“For the holidays, I am handing off this very important duty of greeting visitors to our great city to someone known for the best audibles in the business,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “Peyton Manning earned this call by going long in his efforts to take the Broncos to another AFC West championship. We’ll be cheering on him and the team as they drive toward another Super Bowl!” -DIA Press Release
According to the Denver Post, the greeting will include Manning saying, “Welcome to the Mile High City,” while a piano is playing ‘Jingle Bells’.
It should be interesting to greeting in Manning’s signature southern draw.
Manning’s greeting will play for passenger passing through DIA starting today and lasting until January 2, 2013.
Speaking of Manning, yesterday he led the Broncos to their 9th-straight win with 34-17 pounding of the Baltimore Ravens.
At 11-3, the Broncos would be the 2nd seed in the AFC playoffs of the season ended today and would get a first-round bye in the playoffs.
