One other joked, "Rob Lowe loves all 32 teams equally." Meanwhile, one person said, "Rob Lowe wearing an NFL hat in the crowd. Not a team. Just the NFL logo. Big fan of the league overall. Great stuff."
There was also one who quipped, "When Rob Lowe goes to a concert instead of getting a souvenir band t-shirt he just gets a shirt that says 'music.' " On the other hand, someone jokingly said that Lowe was there to root "for the referees" instead of the teams. Another individual commented, "Rob Lowe just rooting for a good game and success of the league."
Lowe soon caught win of the people's chatter, which is understandable given that his name was trending on social media.
