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.


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.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
