Colts’ owner Jim Irsay recently claimed on Twitter that he and Colts’ center Jeff Saturday could end the NFL lockout “on cocktail napkins, over a long lunch at Rick’s Boatyard . . . it’s not that hard!” Tony Kornheiser, co-host of Pardon the Interruption on ESPN and host of a Washington D.C. radio show, scoffed at Irsay’s suggestion, saying, “Jimmy Irsay, who inherited his team. Worked very hard in the American way. He was in what Dan Jenkins used to call ‘The son business.’ He inherits a team, and now he says, ‘Jeff Saturday and I could hang out, we could go clubbing, we could work this out on a napkin at Ralph’s Boathouse.”
Irsay was not going to let this go unchecked, so he dusted off his resume and shared it on Twitter, all but asking Kornheiser to drop his drawers and compare sizes: “When he can win 115 games n a decade, build a top 3 stadium,win n host a Super Bowl,then he can chirp! I think he used 2 b Bill Tobin’s mailman…but that would b an insult 2 mail men! I just droppin’ knowledge…”
