Jim Irsay tweets support for Ravens’ Super Bowl win in Indy

Everyone knows I love Twitter and while I’m not a captured and enraptured follower of too many sports personalities or pundits, I do follow Indianapolis Colts’ owner Jim Irsay because his feeds are the most lively of anyone on the web — NFL owner or not.

Irsay is known to randomly tweet lyrics to his favorite rock songs, instant giveaways of Colts tickets and merchandise and he even gives injury reports on his team before the P.R. department releases the news.

Today, he tweeted this:

“I’d love 2c Steve B get the Trophy and Baltimore n Indy…got tons of friends there n it’s only fitting with my good friend R Berry n tow!”

A nice gesture and one that’s certainly heartfelt.

I’ve spent some time in recent years with Jim Irsay and as much angst as his last name has created in my life and the lives of many Baltimoreans over the past three decades and I can say for sure that he’s a peaceful man who believes strongly in karma and good deeds.

He’s built a model franchise in Indianapolis since the death of his oft-inebriated father, Tiger Bob.

His sentiments are now on the table.

And for once, I don’t think anyone in Baltimore can disagree with an Irsay…
