News station congratulates Gary Payton for breaking TD pass record


Peyton Manning on Sunday night surpassed Brett Favre as the NFL leader for most touchdown passes in a career. Manning broke the record with his 509th touchdown pass and later threw his 510th, but one news station decided to give credit to a different Peyton — or, should we say, Payton.

When discussing Manning’s milestone, KOMO News in Seattle showed a picture of former NBA point guard Gary Payton. Perhaps they were trying to sneak in a plug for one of their own, as Payton spent the first 14 seasons of his career with the Seattle SuperSonics and went to nine NBA All-Star Games during that span.

Payton found it pretty humorous, as he shared the screenshot on Twitter and wrote “too funny.”

Nice try, KOMO. Sunday night was Peyton’s night — Payton already had his day.
