Snow angels have become the preferred method of celebration for football players whenever there happens to be snow on the ground.
So how do you go about celebrating when you advance to the Super Bowl in 60 degree weather?
Well, you make a “confetti angel” — what else?!?!

Former Vol punter — and current Denver Bronco — Britton Colquitt is hardly the first player to celebrate with a confetti angel, but it’s a sight that never gets old, especially if you’re a Broncos fan. Colquitt’s pregnant wife Nikki joined him in celebration.
The Denver Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl on Sunday by beating the New England Patriots 26-16.
This will be the Broncos’ first Super Bowl appearance since 1999, when they beat the Atlanta Falcons for their second straight championship. That team was led by 38 year old John Elway, who retired following the win.
This time around the Broncos will be led by 37 year old Peyton Manning. The former Vol is having the best season of his career, already setting new records for touchdowns and passing yards in a season. Nothing would be sweeter for Manning than adding another Super Bowl ring to his collection.
Along with Colquitt and Manning, the University of Tennessee will also be represented in the Super Bowl by Broncos defensive ends Robert Ayers and Malik Jackson.
