Mayoral wagers are one of the most interesting parts of the NFL playoffs. The mayors of Baltimore, Denver, San Francisco, Green Bay, Seattle and Atlanta will be ponying up some nice swag depending on the outcome the games.
Here are some of what’s being wagered in this weekend’s games:
Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos
Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings- Blake offered up a platter of broiled crab cakes and will shine blue and orange on Baltimore’s Washington Monument if the Broncos win.
Denver mayor Michael Hancock wagered dry cut “cowboy steaks” and will do the Ray Lewis pre-game dance is the Ravens come out on top.
Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers
Green Bay mayor James Schmitt anted up some cheese curds, chocolates, wine from Captain’s Walk winery. The city will also sponsor free tours to San Francisco school children at the city’s new Exploratorium museum.

Most young teenager kids between the ages of 12-17 who love Ravens middle linebacker think of him as the master motivator, the smooth suit wearing, anchor of the Baltimore Ravens making his final journey through the NFL playoffs.
For those of us that can remember, Ray Lewis was extremely close to not being in this position. Before he was a Super Bowl winner and Defensive MVP in...
The family of two victims, who were killed during Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta back in 2000, haven't forgiven Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis for what happen to them.Lewis, along with Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were charged with murder of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. However, Lewis was eventually charged with obstruction of Justice, a Misdemeanor after he...
When it comes to Ray Lewis and the celebration/glorification of his illustrious, 17-season NFL career, the cliche "what's done is done" applies.
As his career comes to a close, perhaps this weekend when the Ravens take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos, football fans should not be ashamed of loving Ray Lewis. He's earned our admiration and respect.
That is not...
With the Baltimore Ravens facing off against the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Playoff round, I figured it was the perfect time to show off this clip of a volunteer diver at the National Aquarium in Baltimore doing the "Ray Lewis Dance".
Here is Michael Glass showing off his smooth moves at the Aquarium's Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit:

In the fourth longest game in the NFL history the Baltimore Ravens defeated the top seeded Denver Broncos 38-35 in an overtime playoff game for the ages. In what was a back and fourth game all day, the Broncos seemingly had the game won. With 39 seconds in the fourth quarter, Joe Flacco and the [...]
Last night, NFL pundits celebrated the illustrious career of one of the fiercest competitors to ever don an NFL uniform. From the analysts in the booth and studio to the hundreds of media types tweeting sentimental snippets, Lewis was hailed as a great leader, a great competitor, a great tackler…great, great, great.
1/3/13 -”Do you want him to dance? He already dances. Do you...
I must admit this is a very difficult article to write as at heart I am and will forever be a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan.It’s very hard for me to say anything nice about the team (Ravens) that Art Modell stole right from under our noses and broke the hearts of an entire city. LeBron James leaving Cleveland was a speck of dust compared to “The Decision” Art Modell made to...
Monte Sanders, a fitness expert and the CEO and owner of Sanders Optimum Fitness, is way more than just the celebrity trainer to Baltimore Ravens' stars Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. We go inside the brotherhood that began with training.
With Tebow nowhere in sight, it was Ravens defensive captain Ray Lewis this time preaching to viewers that “nothing is impossible with God.”
Joe Flacco stripped the annoying monkey off his back (again) and orchestrated his offense (near-flawlessly) versus a defense that ranked 3rd against the pass (199.6 ypg). Without fear, he catapulted touchdowns, to Jacoby Jones (1) and Torrey...
8 a.m. ET: Ray Lewis strutted his stuff all over the field for his last hoorah in Baltimore last weekend, but he won’t receive the same warm reception up in Denver.
The Ravens are coming off an easy 24-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts in wild card weekend, but they’ll have a much tougher test with Peyton Manning and the No. 1 seed Broncos awaiting them this weekend.
When the Baltimore Ravens travel to Denver to take on the Broncos today in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, I will be looking for a few things.
The weather is supposed to be flat out terrible. With a predicted 17 degrees, it will be interesting to see how these players do throughout the game. I don't care how tough these players are, 17 degrees is cold as...
It was supposed to be an easy day for the Denver Broncos by all accounts, but the Baltimore went toe to toe, tit for tat with them throughout, and in the first overtime period, Peyton Manning rolled out in Brett Favre like fashion and threw the interception that eventually set up Justin Tucker's 47-yard game winning field goal in double OT. Ray Lewis lives to see another...
Ray-Ray vs. Pey-Pey is your narrative talking point for the first of three regular season rematches on Divisional Playoff weekend. Can the Broncos replicate their recent drubbing of Baltimore and send Ray Lewis into a retirement filled with braying and dancing on ESPN? Denver won decisively in the first meeting this year between these teams, though some people have said the game...
