Denver mayor hurt paying off Broncos bet
DENVER (AP) - Denver Mayor Michael Hancock is paying a high price after losing a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake that required him to perform linebacker Ray Lewis' signature pre-game dance if the Broncos lost to the Ravens.
The mayor's spokeswoman, Amber Miller, says Hancock suffered an unspecified injury during "pre-game'' warm-ups Monday.
Miller says Hancock still plans to fulfill his end of the wager. She says Hancock will release an update when one becomes available.
Had the Broncos prevailed, Rawlings-Blake said the Washington Monument would have been lit in blue and orange Broncos colors.
The top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a 38-35 home loss Saturday to the Baltimore Ravens.
