Tiger Woods is famously a huge sports fan outside of golf and he has a rooting interest in this week's Super Bowl.

According to Golf Channel Woods said he's buddies with Peyton Manning and wants the Broncos to win even though he grew up a Raiders fan.

"I like the Broncos. I'm good friends with Peyton (Manning)," said Woods.

"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. That's cool to see. That's cool to see the hard work that he put in to shut everybody up."

Woods knows a thing or two about putting in hard work to shut people up but still, he grew up a Raiders fan!

Maybe girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's influence has gotten to Woods.

Or maybe he just respects that 77 Peyton shot at Augusta National last summer.

Either way, I want a photo of him in one of those crazy Bronco heads from Dubai later on this week.
