Leave it to an actor to break a story before a journalist. “Parks & Recreation’s” Rob Lowe just tweeted that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning will retire this year.
How Rob Lowe discovered this story, we don’t know. But we love him for trying to keep up-to-date with all things sports.
Rob is friends with Colts owner Jim Irsay. USA Today also adds that Rob’s is the first person Irsay followed on Twitter, before the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell. So perhaps Rob just leaked some insider info without realizing it!
The Manning family, however, is claiming Rob’s tweets are incorrect. Peyton’s father Archie Manning told ESPN “he ain’t retiring. I think he would’ve told me!”
