Rob Lowe Announces Peyton Manning Is Retiring, Internet Freaks Out

More
The Internet is abuzz with confusion at the news that Rob Lowe, known in some circles for his acting, tweeted  that he believes Peyton Manning will retire from the NFL after this season. "My people are saying Manning will retire today. What do you hear?" he said causing everyone to double check that their eyes were working properly.  NBC Sports reports  that Lowe is a Colts fan and a friend of the team's owner Jim Irsay, so they seem to think there's at least a chance he's right. But Manning's father has already said  he hasn't heard anything from his son about the reports, so it doesn't seem that likely. And while those with an interest in the career of Peyton Manning, (Manning sat out this season with an injury) sort out the veracity of the claim, the rest of the world is just having at it with jokes about other potential celebrity-turned-reporter scoops. "Also, Lindsey Lohan reporting Lakers offering Bynum and a 1 for Dwight Howard,"  jokes  ESPN's Rick Reilly. We can't even imagine what will happen if he's right.
