Colorado Renames Its 53 Tallest Mountains after Broncos Players

Colorado governor John Hickenlooper realized his state has 53 peaks over 14,000 feet in elevation, and that the Broncos active roster has 53 players, so he has temporarily renamed each mountain for a player.

The state's tallest peak, Mount Elbert, is named after Peyton Manning, while Mt. Massive is fittingly renamed for 335 lb nose tackle Terrence Knighton.

The official proclamation, which also takes a few shots at the Seattle Seahawks, spells out why various mountains were named for each player, like Matt Prater becoming the namesake for Longs Peak due to his record setting 64 yard FG against the Titans this season.
