Colts owner reportedly pays fan for predicting AFC Championship Game
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay followed through with a promise to pay the first person to correctly predict the outcome and score of the AFC Championships Game, according to Deadspin.com.
A Colts fan named Jason told a Phish message board that he predicted Ravens 27, Patriots 13 — the actual score was 28-13 — but Irsay direct messaged him asking for his address. A FedEx package soon arrived with $8,500 in one-hundred-dollar bills.
Jason called Irsay “. . . the best owner in the NFL.”
Again,$8500 for winner of Pats/Rave,exact score with 1 point cushion for both teams for final score/1 guess only by 630pm EST/Abby's hatpick—
