Despite many expecting Peyton Manning to announce his retirement following his Super Bowl 50 win, the Denver Broncos quarterback sidestepped the question in hist first two post-game interviews.

Instead, the long-time NFL player said he was going to spend time with his family and took the opportunity to plug Budweiser beer.

“I’m going to take some time to reflect,” Manning told CBS reporter Tracy Wolfson. “I got a couple priorities first. I want to go kiss my wife and my kids, I want to go hug my family. I’m going to drink a lot of Budweiser.”

What, no love for Disneyland?

Manning and the Broncos defeated Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a final score of 24-10.

The victory marked Manning’s 200th NFL victory. The quarterback has been playing in the league since 1998, 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and four more with the Broncos.

He is a five-time league MVP, who won his first Super Bowl championship with the Colts in 2007.

His father was former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and his younger brother Eli plays that position for the New York Giants.
