Actor Rob Lowe is getting absolutely hammered around the web for his attempt at sports reporting yesterday. Manning’s father and agent denied Lowe’s reporting to USA Today. Lowe is apparently friendly with Colts owner Jim Irsay–who is the presumed source of the tweet heard round the sports world.

Remember though, everyone made fun of Stephen A. Smith for reporting out-of-the-blue that Lebron was going to Miami. And we know how that turned out.
In other completely unrelated Twitter news from yesterday, there’s this:
Imax has since deleted the tweet and says their account was hacked.
