There is such a thing as having too much money

The Indianapolis Colts billionaire owner, Jim Irsay, dropped $2.4 million on Alcoholic Anonymous' founding documents.  

Irsay purchased the documents on Saturday at an auction.  He publicly battled alcohol and drug addiction, but seems to have put that behind him.  

Via the AP:

Irsay said he considers himself a steward for the manuscript, which he said he may also send out on tour so it can be seen by more people.

"I've held it. I've looked through it. It is absolutely mind-blowing," he said. "It was just a miracle to see this thing live."

Irsay, who was clearly excited about obtaining the manuscript during a telephone interview, said he considered remaining anonymous about purchasing the manuscript, but wanted to go public to try to relieve the stigma of alcoholism and addiction.

"The only way we stay sober is to give it away," Irsay said.

"I think it'll help a lot of people," he said. "That's the reason I'm doing it."

If you have the money, why not?  He's wasting much more than that on a quarterback who can't throw a football.
