Omaha may not have an NFL team but that hasn't kept it from making pro football headlines.
For years, NFL quarterback Peyton Manning has called out "Omaha" at the line of scrimmage. That all is about to come to an end as the five-time MVP made his retirement official on Monday.
In typical Manning style, he didn't ride away without one last shout-out to the Big O.
In his retirement press conference, he ended by saying "I had great coaches and players, it wouldn't have been possible without that." Manning said. "So, Omaha!".

The Nebraska city has had its fair share of fun as the "Omaha" line call became a common sports reference. Omaha Steaks even donated a $1,000 every time Manning made the reference during Super Bowl 50.
It looks like it may be time for the Omaha Convention Bureau to start searching for a new representative on the gridiron.
