ANNAPOLIS, MD (January 11, 2013) – Governor Martin O’Malley and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper have made a friendly wager in honor of this weekend’s AFC Divisional playoff game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos. If the Broncos lose, Governor Hickenlooper will send Governor O’Malley a dozen Colorado lamb chops, and if the Ravens lose, Governor O’Malley will send Governor Hickenlooper a dozen Chesapeake Bay crab cakes.
 
“The AFC North Division Champion Baltimore Ravens have been to the playoffs for five straight years, and continue to prove that they are one of the best teams in football,” said Governor O'Malley. “We look forward to the game Saturday, and wish the Ravens well as they march through Denver all the way to the Super Bowl - and we can’t wait to enjoy those Colorado lamb chops.”

Governor Hickenlooper added: “The Denver Broncos are the hottest team in football. We look forward to welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to the thin air in Denver and the raucous atmosphere at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. We can’t think of a better place than Colorado for Ray Lewis to play the last game of his remarkable career.”
In honor of the Ravens and Ray Lewis’ last season on the field, the Governor’s web site has been transformed to Purple, and he has declared today “Purple Friday” for all state employees. “The AFC North Division Champion Baltimore Ravens have been to the playoffs for five straight years, and continue to prove that they are one of the best teams in football,” said Governor O'Malley. “We look forward to the game Saturday, and wish the Ravens well as they march through Denver all the way to the Super Bowl - and we can’t wait to enjoy those Colorado lamb chops.”
