The Mayor Of Denver Injured Himself While Warming Up For The Ray Lewis Dance

  • Dylan Murphy

Coming into Saturday’s AFC divisional playoff game, Denver mayor Michael Hancock and Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had a wager going. Part of that wager compelled Hancock to do the Ray Lewis dance should Baltimore win. And Baltimore did win, somehow, and so Hancock, true to his word, prepared to dance.

Hancock is a middle-aged man, which means copious amounts of stretching before all athletic activity is of paramount importance. But during that preparation period, which apparently took place Monday evening, he suffered an injury.

Via The Denver Post:

“The mayor’s spokeswoman Amber Miller says he was hurt ‘during pre-game warm-ups.’

Hancock is ‘expected to be on the field in the second half, ready to carry out the game plan and fulfill his end of the wager,’ she said.”

Sounds like he’s “faking an injury.” Gambling’s all or nothing, so take your loss like a Charles Barkley.
