OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Peyton Manning's foundation for at-risk youth will receive a $500 contribution for every time the Denver Broncos' quarterback shouts ``Omaha'' during the AFC championship game.
     Manning brought national attention to Nebraska's largest city with his loud ``Omaha'' pre-snap calls during the Broncos' playoff win over San Diego last weekend.
     Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce president and CEO David Brown announced Thursday that five Omaha-based companies are combining to donate $500 to Manning's ``Peyback Foundation'' each time he shouts ``Omaha'' in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.
     Manning said ``Omaha'' 44 times in last week's game. The same number against the Patriots would be worth $22,000 to his foundation.
     The participating companies are ConAgra Foods, First National Bank of Omaha, Mutual of Omaha, Omaha Steaks and Union Pacific Railroad.
