Jim Irsay Doesn't Drink and Other Fine Ramblings From the Twitter-ific Indianapolis Colts Owner

I stayed up for a bit after the end of the Sunday Night Football game expecting/hoping to see some Twitter greatness to come from Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay. I got tired of waiting and eventually went to bed. Sure enough while I was brushing my teeth the man went into action.

It was a good little Twitter session for Irsay--and a wee bit educational too!

Normally Irsay has one general mood to his tweets, but this time I think he was all over the place. He started out on the right foot with his first tweet of the night (or early morning hours):

Nothing too bad there. Way to pat yourself on the back a littl there Jimbo. In the next one he continued to build on his reputation as the Jerry Jones of the Midwest by taking credit for the work it took to make the team a contender:

He was smart enough to give a nod to the fans and some of the team's greats, past ad present:

But than he had to ruin it by becoming the very same thing he was trying to criticize--twitter trolls.

Yeah, I think the team was fired up because it wanted to win...but then he brought it back down to Earth by giving credit where it is due:

He had to go back to being a troll though, and in the process we learn that he doesn't drink; kind of a surprise when you consider some of his tweets over the years.

How better to wrap it up than by being a Twitter troll once again.

Oh Jim. It's never a dull moment with you.
