Irsay started working with the Colts as a ball boy. Today, he’s the owner of one of the NFL’s model franchises. With an old-school philosophy, a keen business sense and a desire to win, Irsay has not only transformed a losing team to a winner, but turned a basketball city into one that embraces football with even more fervor.

Plenty of NFL players and media have Twitter pages that have become mandatory follows. There’s an owner with a Twitter page that has, almost out of the blue, become appointment tweet viewing.

Already this week, Colts owner Jim Irsay has provided an advance “scratch” list for injured players, and he broke the news that the team will be placing safety Bob Sanders on injured reserve.

Today, as the Colts prepare to face the Titans in Nashville, Irsay provided some comic relief in describing his visit with Tennessee owner Bud Adams, via Terry McCormick of

“Went to breakfast with Bud, service to slow at Hob Knob, Bud gave waitress the Finger, we both got kicked out!!! We’re appealing commish fine!”

Last year, Adams drew a $250,000 fine for pulling out a double-barreled middle finger from his suite during a home game against the Bills.

Why do we suddenly have a feeling that this receiver-needy team will be making a play for Twitter fiends T.O. and Chad Ochocinco?
