Moments after it was reported that Peyton Manning has worked out his contract with the Broncos, Colts owner Jim Irsay offered a congratulatory message the old-fashioned way, instead of using his preferred medium of Twitter.
But Irsay’s message, distributed as a press release from the Colts’ PR department, wasn’t much longer than 140 characters.
“I congratulate Peyton as he heads to a tremendous organization in the Denver Broncos. We wish him nothing but the best as he continues his Hall of Fame career,” Irsay said.
The Broncos don’t play the Colts in 2012, so Irsay’s team won’t face the “tremendous organization” in Denver. Unless the Colts and Broncos meet in the AFC playoffs, in a game that would surely top even the Tebowmania-fueled TV ratings of two months ago.
