That’s right, THE Rob Lowe. You know, the guy from Wayne’s World and The Outsiders and the rest. The Hollywood actor has shocked the world with his “report” that Peyton Manning is stepping away.
That is indeed Lowe with Colts owner Jim Irsay, with whom I presume to be either his or Irsay’s kids (or both).
UPDATE: It’s looking as though Lowe will remain 1-for-1 as a Hollywood heartthrob but drop to 0-for-1 as an NFL insider, as ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports (probably with quite a lot of glee) that Archie Manning has denied Peyton is planning to retire. And Manning’s agent, Tom Condon, told NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora that the “retirement” was news to him.
UPDATE 2: Irsay has addressed the situation in typical Irsay fashion…
