When you spend thirteen years of your life in one place, it's natural to become attached to it in some way, shape, or form. In the case of former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, there remains an admiration for one perceivably minor aspect of his old home: the Colts team writers.
Phillip B Wilson of The Indianapolis Star said via Twitter, "Stunned today to receive cell call from Peyton Manning. Former Colts QB is calling writers to thank them for their work over the years."
Wilson went on to note that this was the first time he had ever received a "good-bye call" from a departing player.
Somewhat of an unsurprisingly class move from a morally strong individual. It's certainly safe to say Peyton Manning's tenure in Indianapolis ended a little better than Brett Favre's did in Green Bay.
