Tiger Woods reveals who hell root for in the Super Bowl

Tiger Woods is well known as a fan of the Oakland Raiders, which means that he'll have to cheer for some other team in the Super Bowl this Sunday. So who'll it be? Perhaps surprisingly, Woods will be backing the Raiders' AFC West rivals, the Denver Broncos, over the opposing Seattle Seahawks. So what's the deal? ''I like the Broncos. I'm good friends with Peyton (Manning),'' he said in Dubai, where he is playing the Omega Dubai Desert Classic this week. ''Let's be honest, he got scrutinized pretty hard when he left (the Colts) that he would never be the same after his neck surgery, and it's right, he's not the same; he's better,'' Woods added. ''That's cool to see. That's cool to see the hard work that he put in to shut everybody up.'' Hmm, sounds like Tiger can relate to Peyton more than a little. I'm not sure when those two first met, but Woods played with Manning in the pro-am before the Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte back in 2009 (as seen in the photo above), and he and girlfriend Lindsey Vonn attended the Broncos-Chiefs game in Denver back in November.
