Hey, a bet is a bet, even when it’s made on Twitter.

On Sunday afternoon, Colts owner Jim Irsay Tweeted that he’d pay $8500 cash to the person who guesses the closest score of the AFC Championship Game:

The winning Twitter guess: 27- 14 Ravens, hitting the one-point cushion. The Colts fan with the winning guess explained what happened on PhantasyTour, a Phish message board:

Air_SoftG_Gordon: yeap this guy right here, He tweeted out $8500 for winner of Pats/Raven exact score with 1 point cushion for both teams for final score/1 guess only by 6:30 P.M. est. I guess 27 14 ravens and bam won it.

He then posted this picture of his cash payout from Irsay, complete with a letter that reads:

“Jason, Congratulations again on winning a Twitter contest. Enclosed you will find your prize which consists of $8,500.00. Please continue to follow me on Twitter and thank you for your continued support. Go Colts!”


Once again, Colts owner Jim Irsay is the man, even if he dresses like a wild man on occasions.
