Did you hear about Peyton?

Hilarious. Rob Lowe – yes, the actor – is reporting that Peyton Manning will retire. This is what Lowe, who is a Colts fan, tweeted from an account that I’m not certain wasn’t hacked:

Hearing my fave, #18 Peyton Manning will not return to #NFL. Wow.#Colts

@richeisen My people are saying Manning will retire today. What do you hear? #NFL

#Colts fans, let's hope my info is wrong. Don't like being wrong, but this time… I'm hoping #NFL #Manning

Thanks, SOPA.

UPDATE: There goes ESPN’s Chris Mortensen ruining all the fun. He spoke with Archie Manning and relays the following via his Twitter:

Archie Manning laughed when he heard @RobLowe said Peyton will retire, "Noooo…he ain't retiring. I think he would've told me."

Archie also says it's no publicity gimmick with Grand Opening tonight of "Manning's" sports-themed restaurant in New Orleans. 


Not sure I buy that second part, but, yeah, Manning’s probably not retiring.
