OK believe it or not, Ted & Kate owned the Colts before they were ever called the Colts or even in Baltimore. You see the Colts origionaly founded in 1944 as the Boston Yankees with green pen strips uniforms. The team also played their games at Fenway Park. Then in 1949, the team moved to New York and for one year called them selves the New York Bulldogs. Then from 1951-1953 the team was in Dallas and called them selves the Texans. Then Rosenblume bought the team moved them to Baltimore and called them the Colts.

Jim Irsay has an asterik, because in 1995 his dad was too sick to run the team so he made his son owner as a day to day thing.
