Peyton Manning cheers on old pal Todd Helton's Grand Slam

Peyton Manning attended Sunday's Colorado Rockies-New York Mets game as a guest of his old teammate at the University of Tennessee  Todd Helton and got a chance to see his friend hit a pinch hit grand slam.

The Denver Broncos new quarterback jumped up from his seat, pointed his finger in the air and high-fived a guy siting next to him as Helton's blast tied the game at 4-4 in the 8th inning.

Manning and Helton were both quarterbacks at UT in the 90's and now get a chance to play in the Mile High City in their respective sports.

Helton's blast eventually lost some its lustre, after New York's Ike Davis singled in David Wright from third in the 11th inning for a 6-5 Mets victory in front of 37,000 fans at Coors Field.

Manning played shortstop in high school.
