It’s the tweet that sent bloggers & Twitter dorks into a frenzy 20 minutes ago. Rob Lowe, off the radar to most sports junkies, is now reporting that Peyton Manning’s NFL career is over. How does he know such news? He has f*cking sources, baby! Lowe went on to tweet Rich Eisen asking him what he’s hearing. Lowe then told his followers he hopes his sources are wrong.
Can we all just say a little prayer that Lowe is right and scooped Schefter & Mort? Please.
UPDATE: A little Google Image search reveals that Colts’ owner Jim Irsay and Lowe seem to be bros. Here is Lowe with Irsay and Irsay’s boys at the 2010 Superbowl. Guessing Rob had a tip from his buddy.
