Peyton Manning Calls Rob Lowe “Sodapop Curtis”
I loved the book The Outsiders.
Even though I love to read it is more graphic novels and comics. I don’t remember many of the books I read as “Young Rob”, but I know The Outsiders inside and out.
Many life lessons that can be applied to present day.
Peyton Manning might not be a Colt next year, but if I was a GM I might give him $50 million just for this reference.
Peyton Manning is not retiring, at least not any time soon.
“I never thought ‘Sodapop Curtis’ would announce my retirement,” Manning said, laughing, referring to Lowe’s character in the 1983 movie “The Outsiders.” “I always thought I would be the one to announce it. I’m a huge fan of the movie, but that caught me way off guard. I can’t explain it. I know he (Lowe) is a friend of Jim’s (Irsay), and Jim sounded surprised.”
Peyton wants to stay with the Colts and subtly he also wants to get paid the money he is owed, but if I had to venture a guess.
