DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is taking Super Bowl hoopla to new heights.
He announced Wednesday that he’s temporarily re-naming Colorado’s highest mountains for each member of the Denver Broncos. The state is home to more than 50 mountains over 14,000 feet, called “14-ers” by locals.
Hickenlooper renamed the tallest mountain, Mt. Elbert, for Peyton Manning, while Zane Beadles and other members of the offensive line are getting the Collegiate Peaks range. Capitol Peak, considered to be the most difficult to climb, was temporarily renamed for Champ Bailey. Longs Peak went to long kicker Matt Prater.
In his proclamation, the brewpub pioneer also takes a dig at Seattle, noting that it makes some “OK beer.”
