In a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Hancock promised to perform star Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis' famous pre-game dance in the event of a Baltimore playoff victory Saturday night.

For her part, Rawlings-Blake said she will light Baltimore’s historic Washington Monument in blue and orange Broncos colors should the Peyton Manning-led Denver squad emerge victorious.

That was the first thing I thought, too. Especially since it's in DC, not Baltimore. It's kind of like betting somebody else's money.
Nonetheless, I always like when I hear about things like this. It really gets the whole city (or surrounding city, as the case may be) involved and supporting the team.
Nothing would be better than to see the Denver mayor have to do Ray's dance.

The bet involves Washington Monument in Baltimore, not the one in Washington, D.C.

You're welcome.

Personally, I feel such use of the monument is very disrespectful.

I get that. I'd rather it be more personal, as I can imagine those who aren't football fans at all won't be too thrilled to see colors that mean nothing to them. Something else might be better, but I don't have a problem with it. All in good fun.

He does. It's oddly similar to trotting off the field with his head down after a playoff loss. Funny how one game from six years ago can make everybody forget how a guy was considered a choke artist in the biggest games, huh? New Orleans pick six, anyone?

Can't wait to see Michael Hancock make an attempt at the legendary Squirrel Dance.

Too bad they won't have a life size Ashley Fox doll standing next to him with flames shooting out of her head!

Thank God we won. Baltimore would've rioted if the monument was lit in blue and orange.

I'm worried about the bet our mayor is probably trying to negotiate right now with NE.

With all the hypes of love for Denver from the media before the game, Hancock thinks it's a sure win so he'll make the bet, but when the reality kicked in, he scares to standup as a man and dances like a squirrel...

Mayor Hancock is a joke if he didn't do the squirrel dance....

[size=4]The mayor of Denver calls his hurt leg an "injury." The mayor of Baltimore calls it an "excuse."[/size]

[size=4]Addressing the pressing issues of our time, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Wednesday took issue with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock's postponement of his performance of linebacker Ray Lewis' signature dance. [/size]

[size=4]"There are many that feel that this is a way for him to get out of the obligation he made publicly prior to the game," Rawlings-Blake said. "I just think it’s interesting that there was so much trash talking before the game. Now there are a lot of excuses." [/size]
