Denver mayor finally pays up on lost bet, does Ray Lewis dance

mayordance

A few weeks ago, we told you about how Denver’s mayor, Michael Hancock, had failed to pay up on his end of a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

The deal was that Hancock would do the Ray Lewis dance if the Ravens were able to beat the Broncos in the AFC Divisional playoff game…which, of course, they did.

Thanks to Joe Flacco, Jacoby Jones, Corey Graham, and Justin Tucker (among others, of course), the Ravens pulled off the stunning upset and are now in New Orleans preparing for Super Bowl XLVII.

Hancock supposedly hurt himself “in warm ups” after his Broncos lost, and was unable to fulfill his end of the bet.

Mayor Rawlings-Blake didn’t forget, as she brought up the bet in yesterday’s Ravens send-off rally at the Inner Harbor.

Now it seems that Hancock has finally recovered and was able to pay up.

Enjoy.

    Ray Ray does it with a bit more feeling. And I thought this mayor said he would do it downtown Denver??? We should have a clause that said…. outside with tv cameras!

      Huh????? He could’ve just stepped outside and done it…less than a minute…no fuss no muss…instead, they make a video of it and it’s on youtube. GREAT job Mayor Hancock! Thanks for being a good sport!

    LOL!!! It looked like it killed him to do it! Oh well, at least he held up to his end of the BET! :) Wasn’t too shabby either. Way to go Mayor Hancock.
