If you’re a Indianapolis Colts fan looking to get a little Super Bowl bling for yourself, you’re in luck. Five lucky Colts fans will leave the RCA dome on December 2nd with authentic Super Bowl rings on their fingers. It’s all part of owner Jim Irsay’s efforts to become Willy Wonka.
Jim Irsay did his best Elton John impersonation on Tuesday as he announced the plans that would reward the Colts’ loyal fans while also raising money for Indiana charities. The way to is two-fold, with the first being easy – buying a $5 raffle ticket. But winning the Colts’ version of the “magic ticket” is only the beginning. Can anyone say treasure hunt?
The second stage is a two-day treasure hunt when the 25 winners and up to three helpers of their choosing will search for Colts-related items around the city. Ten finalists then will gather on the field at halftime of the Dec. 2 Colts-Jacksonville game. Each will open a locked box, with five finding rings — valued at $5,000 apiece — commemorating the Colts’ victory in Super Bowl XLI.While the team ideally would have done this closer to their Super Bowl win, kudos has to be given to the team for putting this together, and having a good enough sense of humor about things to do it in the way they are. Especially Irsay. Could you imagine Jim Dolan dressed up like that?
