You may have thought Peter King, Adam Schefter or Jay Glazer would break big NFL news on Twitter, but a bombshell came today from actor Rob Lowe. According to the star of the very underrated About Last Night, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning won't return to the NFL. Is the news true? Who knows? So far, all we have is Lowe's tweet. However, the actor's "scoop" made for a humorous afternoon on Twitter, where people used references to famous '80s actors, cult movies, Parks and Recreation and much more. Here are 10 amusing Tweets that came after Lowe broke his "news."
1. @injuryexpert: Wait, now Rob Lowe is breaking NFL news? I guess I better check what Ally Sheedy thinks about the NFC Championship matchup.
2. @VIROGERS: Let's not forget that Rob Lowe tried to take over Callahan Auto Parts and was unsuccessful.
3. @celebrityhottub: Oh man, does this mean Eli's stuck being friends with CHAD Lowe? That sucks.
4. @Drew_Hallett: Rob Lowe is breaking news that Peyton Manning will retire today? Can't trust a man that went against Wayne and Garth.
5. @AuthorofPatches: More Breaking News. According to Emilio Estevez....Actually, he's got nothing but would just like to know if anybody's hiring.
6. @wyshynski: Please tell me that Aaron Sorkin is scripting Rob Lowe/Jim Irsay chat on Manning. (briskly walking) "Retired as in retired?" "As in retired"
7. @pourmecoffee: I went ahead and paid for the full @RobLowe subscription. Stuff behind paywall is unreal -- injuries, trades, everything.
8. @awfulannouncing: This may or may not be the first time ESPN will claim Rob Lowe's Twitter feed as a "source."
9. @bradyfan590: As long as Ron Swanson moves from Pawnee, Indiana to become the Colts new head coach & does weekly pressers, I don't care who quarterbacks.
10. @KEGR123: Breaking: Brian Austin Green reports @JimmyTraina to replace Michael Kay on YES Yankee games
