Colts owner reportedly pays fan for predicting AFC Championship Game

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay followed through with a promise to pay the first person to correctly predict the outcome and score of the AFC Championships Game, according to Deadspin.com.

A Colts fan named Jason told a Phish message board that he predicted Ravens 27, Patriots 13 -- the actual score was 28-13 -- but Irsay direct messaged him asking for his address. A FedEx package soon arrived with $8,500 in one-hundred-dollar bills.

Jason called Irsay ". . . the best owner in the NFL."
