All I ask of the crowd today at The Luc:MAKE THE STANDING OVATION LAST 10 MINUTES ……it’s the least we can do.
I mean, go absolutely nuts for 10 minutes and don’t let them start the game because of it. Throw rolls of toilet paper onto the field if you have to in order to delay the start – anything – Peyton deserves it.
We deserve it.
We never really had a full opportunity to say "Thanks so much" or "See you later" because of the way things went down.
1 minute to say "Thanks" for 14 fantastic years is not much at all. 14 minutes is a bit much, but NHL legend Wayne Gretzky received a 4 minute standing ovation upon return to Edmonton.
Let’s hope we can at least match that today in the House that Peyton Built. Don't stop standing and don't stop cheering for at least 4 minutes - even if the video is playing. We can watch a video anytime, but Peyton is BACK and so we need to let him know how we feel.
Then get crazy-loud when he's on the field trying to audible. He'll appreciate the irony.
Finally, GO BLUE !!
