Rob Lowe Tweets Peyton Manning Retirement Rumor
4:37 pm, January 18th, 2012
This is odd.
“Hearing my fave, #18 Peyton Manning will not return to #NFL. Wow. #Colts,” wrote Lowe.
He added, “#Colts fans, let’s hope my info is wrong. Don’t like being wrong, but this time… I’m hoping #NFL #Manning.”
Twitter immediately blew up with the rumor, which, we should note, has not yet been reported independently by any major outlet.
The development is interesting in three ways.
First, it’s not often that a celebrity is the one who starts a major rumor.
Second, Manning’s retirement after losing an entire season to injury would be a very big deal.
Finally, if he somehow winds up scooping the world on this story, Lowe could always leave acting behind for a career in sports reporting.
