He may be going on his second season as a retired player, but that doesn't mean Peyton Manning has lost his love for the game — or the teams he's played for. 

Last year, he was able to make it to his Alma mater, the University of Tennessee, to catch a couple games, and probably hang out with his buddy and former Rockies superstar, Todd Helton, who's now coaching baseball there. He traveled to New York for three games to watch his brother Eli, and in a recent interview, also noted that he went to every single home Broncos game too. Still living in Denver, Manning considers himself both an ambassador and fan of the game, but said that he enjoys getting to take it in on his own terms.

Seeing how much passion he still has for football only fuels rumors that Manning could potentially step in to replace Jon Gruden as the Monday Night Football analyst.
