Indy expects Irsay to help make Super Bowl pitch

AP - Sports

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts owner Jim Irsay is expected to make the final pitch for Indianapolis' Super Bowl bid May 20 in Atlanta.

Irsay has been undergoing treatment since March when he was arrested near his home in an Indianapolis suburb. The arrest report said he had $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his car.

Pete Ward, Irsay's assistant in the Colts' organization, told reporters Wednesday that Irsay would speak during the five minutes owners are given to lobby other owners to award their city the Super Bowl. That will follow 15-minute presentations from each city vying to host the 2018 Super Bowl - Indy, Minneapolis and New Orleans.

The owners meetings would be Irsay's first public appearance since the arrest.
