DENVER — Food and pride are on the line in a friendly playoffs football bet between Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake.

If the Broncos win Mayor Hancock gets a platter of crab cakes from Baltimore.

If the Ravens win, Baltimore’s mayor gets a platter of cowboy cut steaks from Lombardi Brothers.

As for the pride part of the bet… if the Broncos win, Baltimore’s historic Washington Monument will be bathed in orange and blue light.

And if the Ravens win, Hancock has agreed to perform the famous Ray Lewis pregame dance.
