UPDATE: Rob Lowe Breaks News On Peyton Manning Retirement?





That's Rob Lowe, actor who has appeared in all sorts of Films (Wayne's World, Tommy Boy, Austin Powers) and sitcoms (Parks & Recreation, Californication). He's an Indianapolis Colts fan, and well documented to be a good friend of Jim Irsay. As you can see, he broke the news that Peyton Manning is planning on retiring.

I'm not one to suggest that Manning wouldn't choose Rob Lowe to break the news of his retirement, but with the two having no documented relationship beyond celebrities with a connection in management, and most of Manning's news being broken by his father and his brother just this weekend saying he'd love to see his brother in New York if things don't continue in Indianapolis, I'm leaning towards these sources not being highly reliable. However, if they are, I'd believe Manning has been disrespected in not being able to address this on his own, or appointing someone to speak for him. It appears Lowe wasn't told by Manning himself, so one would have to believe that's exactly the case.

I don't believe Peyton's career is over, yet. I'm not saying he won't retire in a month, but I'd be shocked if Manning didn't at least test OTA's and perhaps even training camp to see where he's at physically before making this type of decision. Besides, a gamer like Peyton would probably go the Brett Favre route and get that itch, although I don't believe it would be 4 consecutive years of speculation and reneges.

As a Peyton Manning fan, I hope he's well enough to continue playing for a few more years, and definitely hoping that, whether it's this year or 4 from now, that the Colts give him the honor of retiring a Colt and on his own terms, with his own announcement, and not leaked information through unnamed sources to a celebrity who is friends with the boss.

Stay tuned, and we'll keep you updated on Manning's status as the story progresses. Or follow us on Twitter @Sean_Bishop.


UPDATE:

According to Irsay, Rob Lowe is full of BS. Or maybe he's serious about Rob Lowe's future movie role. Stick with us and we'll keep you updated.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
