Jim Irsay, Indianapolis Colts CEO whose father was widely demonized for yanking the Colts out of Baltimore nearly 30 years ago, is apparently rooting for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl this year.
About two hours ago, he tweeted, in not-so-plain English: "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!"
"Steve B" is obviously referring to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, while "R Berry" is former Baltimore Colts wide receiver Raymond Berry, who will help present the Lombardi Trophy to the Super Bowl winner.
This seems like a pathetic attempt to connect to the Baltimore franchise, now that his Indianapolis Colts (who went 2-14 without Peyton Manning this season) aren't in the playoffs. I'm not sure what "friends" Irsay is referring to in this town, because I've certainly never met any.
What do you think of Irsay's support for the Ravens?
