What better way to show your team spirit, than to name a friggen mountain after the star players. Colorado’s governor has recently approved a bill to change the names of some of the states beautiful mountain peaks, to reflect the names of the Broncos players.

According to ABC News

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper named 53 of his state’s tallest mountains, known as the 14ers, after players from the AFC Champion Denver Broncos in advance of Sunday’s Super Bowl.

The mountains will officially take the new names for just one day — Super Bowl Sunday.

In a release, Hickenlooper found links between many of the mountains and their new Broncos counterparts. The state’s tallest peak, Mount Elbert, will be named after star quarterback Peyton Manning. Mount Massive will be named after 6-foot-3 inch, 335 pound defensive tackle Terrance Knighton.
