Watch Peyton Manning, Wes Welker dance to ‘Rocky Top.’ Please. We beg you.

Someone wanted to dance Monday. (AP)

Among the sports things to be thankful for today, there is this: Peyton Manning went to a university with a fight song that makes people want to dance.

And, on Monday, darned if he didn’t do that. When “Rocky Top,” the Tennessee fight song, blared over the loudspeaker at the Denver Broncos’ training camp, he got moving. Britton Colquitt, another Tennessee alum, got into it, too, and then wonderfully, inexplicably (and wonderfully inexplicably) Wes Welker got into the act.

Maybe Welker was dancing to the Texas Tech fight song.
