Actor Rob Lowe posted a series of tweets today in which he said that his “people” have informed him that Indianapolis Colts star Peyton Manning will retire. It is unknown who Lowe’s sources are, or whether or not the tweets are a prank.

Lowe is a noted Colts fan, however he is not known to be one to break sports news. Lowe’s character on his current television show Parks and Recreation, also is a Colts fan. Manning missed the entirety of the 2011 NFL season after undergoing neck surgery. As a result, the Colts went just 2-14 after finishing 2010 with a 10-6 record.
