    We all make mistakes, present company included. But some mistakes are just really, really funny.Like talking about Peyton Manning on air and having a photo of Gary Payton appear on the graphic behind you. Oh my.KOMO 4 in Seattle was talking about the Denver Broncos quarterback setting the NFL's record for touchdown passes during its broadcast, but mistakenly showed the former Seattle SuperSonics guard.
