Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is, as many football fans know, a little crazy. So obviously he would give away money to a fan over a game in which his team wasn’t even involved.
He recently held a contest on Twitter where he offered $8,500 to any fan who predicted the exact score of the AFC Championship Game with the Patriots and Ravens, within one point for each team. One lucky guy predicted 27-14 Ravens, which turned out to be exactly one off the 28-13 final score (unfortunately for Patriots fans).
