Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay announced on Friday that he's going to build a statue of Peyton Manning outside Lucas Oil Stadium.
It was sentimental but also kind of awkward.
"It’ll be a destination spot for all of our fans... just like Jim Morrison’s grave. Uh, even though it’s not a grave," Irsay said.
"It will be a destination for people to leave cans of Budweiser, or notes for you, so we’ll collect those and get those to ya as the years pass," he said.
Jim Irsay says they will build a statue honoring Peyton Manning outside Lucas Oil Stadium. And then compares it to Jim Morrison's grave?
