Quote of the Day
“WIN Free,brand new Toyota! Must b Season Ticket Holder! 10 balls signed by #1 pick,the 1 with Reggie’s signature also on ball Wins!”
-Jim Irsay, Indianapolis Colts owner
Who else. At this point, you can’t even get worked up about the stuff Irsay tweets. He’s just set the bar so high with gems like these that it’s practically impossible to out-do himself. So instead, let’s just file this under, “Stuff you do when you can’t sell a season ticket package to save your life.” Seriously, you never see the Steelers, Packers, Giants or Patriots giving away a Toyota. Why? Because they have rosters that aren’t complete dumpster fires and don’t have to offer low-end cars to entice people to buy a season ticket package.
That brings me to the craziest part of all of this — who on earth can afford an NFL season ticket package, but not their own car?? Who does Irsay think is sitting there going, “well I can make my car payments or buy the Colts tickets…hmm…wait, a 1 in 50,000 chance to do both?! SIGN ME UP!” I mean sweet 6lb, 8 ounce baby jesus. Give the fans something they can’t get on their own. How about a BMW, at the very least? Just hilariously pathetic from a franchise that hastily and unexpectedly veered into crap-fest territory.
