Peyton Manning felt right at home with Todd Helton and the Colorado Rockies.

Manning dropped by Coors Field on Sunday morning to visit his pal before a game against the New York Mets.

Manning and Helton were quarterbacks at the University of Tennessee in the mid-1990s. Manning recently signed with the Denver Broncos to become their new QB.

When Manning was going through his rehabilitation from neck surgery during the NFL lockout, Helton helped arrange for him to use the Rockies' facilities to work out.

Manning thanked Helton and the Rockies for their hospitality. Manning said that when he left the Indianapolis Colts, became a free agent and was deciding on a new team, he knew Denver was a great sports town from his previous visits.
