Say what you must about Jim Irsay, but he's by far among the most social media responsive executives in the NFL.

Although his Twitter timeline mostly consists of (sometimes incoherent) ramblings, the Colts owner is known to hold contests every now and again.

Take, for example, last Sunday, when the AFC Championship game between the Ravens and Patriots. Irsay tweeted that the first person to correctly guess the score and outcome would win $8,500 in cash.

One Colts fan named Jason gave it his best shot.

And Irsay was a man of his word.

On Wednesday, a package arrived at Jason's house, containing $8,500 in 100s along with a signed letter from Irsay:

Dear 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!

The proof was posted on a messageboard which Jason apparently frequents.

Awesome.
