Peyton Manning on Pizza and Pot

Munchies Alert: Peyton Manning enjoys a slice of Papa John’s pizza as CEO John Schnatter looks on.

Papa John's franchisee and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is a big fan of the munchies. The more legal pot sold in Colorado, the more pizza his 21 stores sell, and he knows it.

"There’s some different laws out here in Colorado," Manning tells Sports Illustrated. "Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes."

Last season, Manning led the Broncos to the Stoner Bowl, which they lost to Seattle. On Sunday, the two teams face off in Seattle. Gametime is 4:25 pm ET on CBS.
