Rob Lowe, currently of Parks and Recreation and formerly of The West Wing, has apparently heard from People Who Know Things that Peyton Manning will retire today. Lowe is a big Colts fan, which explains his interest in the Indiana-based Parks and Rec, but if he's right, he appears to have scooped even the NFL Network's Rich Eisen.
A Manning retirement would mean a near-complete Colts turnover, which would undoubtedly turn the fictional world of Parks and Rec upside down...not to mention the real-life Indianapolis and the 1.8 million people around it.
Will Lowe be proven right? Has Manning taken his last snap? Will there be a St. Elmo's Fire 2? The world waits for answers.
