I would think a bottle of Maker's Mark and a smart phone would've been more apt, coming from him.

Dollars to donuts sez Irsay's bottle of "water" in the picture above is actually gin and tonic (hold the tonic).

I loved my Commodore 64. It's still in working order at my parent's house.

Thanks Jimmy Boy!!!

Cool move by Irsay but he should've hooked them up with PS4's instead. Win-win.

Irsay saves $100 per unit and the players get a better system.

Personally I'd rather have a nice bottle of Bourbon....... Awe who am I kidding, I'd settle for a cheap bottle of blended whiskey over any video game console.

December 22, 2013  08:25 AM ET

Yeah, millionaires getting toys while the poor in Indy go hungry at Christmas. Good move.

This Snarky Scamp is soo hard to take seriously with his tweets during games, and impossible to like. His daddy was outspoken too and usually hammered when he spoke. Midnight Mayflower move em out cause I want free stuff Robbie has passed the torch.

Ahhhh...to be rich and drunk at Christmas time.

December 22, 2013  10:28 AM ET

I am inclined to agree with you.
