The internet today is going crazy with the rumor that Peyton Manning is going to retire. If true, then this is huge news for the Seahawks and every other team that was hoping he was going to be released soon and then would be available to lead their franchise.
The problem is that the source of this rumor is Rob Lowe, a TV actor who has no connection to either Manning or the Colts.
Clearly this is a SOPA protest issue. Wikipedia goes down and guys like Lowe can’t fact check anymore, and thus are reduced to making stuff up. I hope that Congress comes to it’s senses soon and votes down that stupid bill so we can go back to doing what we should be doing: ignoring people like Lowe.
