INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Want to win an Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl ring? Here's your chance.
During a pep rally for Sunday's game against New England, Colts owner Jim Irsay wore a giant blue top hat, large round blue sunglasses and a white showman's suit as he told hundreds of fans about the ``Quest for the Ring'' raffle.
``I look like Willie Wonka Elton, a combination of Willie Wonka and Elton John,'' Irsay joked before throwing open a gold treasure chest containing a small box with five shiny rings.
Although some fans clearly hoped Irsay would toss the rings into the crowd, he explained the rings would be given away in a raffle he hopes will raise up to $1 million for Indiana charities.
Raffle tickets cost $5 each and will be sold through Nov. 20 for the three-stage contest.
Twenty-five finalists will first be chosen from up to 200,000 tickets the team hopes to sell. Ten finalists will then be chosen to move onto the contest's final stage during a Nov. 30-Dec. 1 treasure hunt for Colts-related items hidden around Indianapolis.
Those finalists will gather on the RCA Dome field at halftime of the Colts' Dec. 2 game against Jacksonville and select one locked box and key. Five of those boxes will contain a Super Bowl ring.
