1. Peyton's retirement brings out more memories...
Peyton Manning's tearjerking retirement speech spanned his entire football career, bringing back memories for himself and for many of those who played against him, looked up to him or simply shared a field with him.
[Dear Shannon, I just wanted to congratulate you on being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. What a tremendous honor, and dertainly well-deserved. I hope the next month and the induction ceremony are great for you. I hope our paths cross soon, and once again, congratulations. Sincerely, Peyton Manning.]*
2. ...and a few commemorative gestures
Friends and fans alike were proud to share their appreciation for all that Manning's football career brought into their lives, and of course his last day as a Bronco couldn't have been complete without some chicken parm.
3. Paying tribute to another retiring great
Demaryius Thomas went from celebrating Manning's career on Monday to doing the same for another all-time great who also had an immeasurable impact on his life, former Lions WR Calvin Johnson, who announced his retirement on Tuesday.
