Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and Rockies slugger Todd Helton are best friends forever. They love each other like brothers. Their friendship runs deep, but not quite as deep as a post pattern. And that might explain why Helton had to quit Manning's football team, before the quarterback cut him.

"I can't catch. Catch a football? No way," Helton confessed. "Now, you give me my first baseman's glove, and I can catch a baseball. But when Manning throws a football? That's not for me. It hurts your hands too much."
