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

January 10, 2012 | Nestor Aparicio


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…

    I think he was bluffing. He knows that Baltimore hates the Irsay family.

    He should keep his mouth shut about Baltimore. He will never earn any goodwill from us.

    Its one thing that the Irsay family took the Baltimore Colts to Indy in the middle of the night, well you know Im over that but if Jim wants to really be “At Piece”, Return the Colts name and all records to Baltimore and rename his franchise, then and only then would I show any respect, The Modell family left the Browns name and records respectifully in Cleveland, that is because the Modells have class, Go Ravens!!!!!

    I wonder how Karma is going to act to that Bus Trip to piss on his Father’s grave?

    And then he name drops Ray Berry. What an ass. he can keep his sediment. I’ll take the ring. Berry can stay up there with the Indy fans. Most of whom don’t even know who he is.

    Next time you talk to him, tell him to tell the Hall of Fame to create a separate exhibit for the BALTIMORE Colts.

    F this Pr**k. He really has alot of friends in Baltimore? I hope you have fun Nestor with your buddy Jimmy.He really believes in Karma and Good Deeds???? How about in 1996 when Modell asked him to return the Colts name to Baltimore and he said sure for 100 million. Where the hell was his Karma and good deeds there? I am worried about you Nestor.
