Denver Mayor Does The 'Ray Lewis' Dance


Democratic Mayor Michael Hancock of Denver lost his bet as quickly as his beloved Broncos lost their bid to the Super Bowl, and it was Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake who came out victorious in this rivalrous football bet.

Hancock placed a bet with Rawlings-Blake in favor of the Broncos at the Jan. 13 NFL divisional playoffs game. His losing two-part wager cost him a box of dry aged "cowboy cut" rib eye steaks from Lombardi Brothers Meats and a performance of Ray Lewis' signature game dance.

Denver's mayor, who is a man of his word, completed his second task, recording a YouTube video doing the "Ray Lewis" to Nelly's 2002 hit single, "Hot in Here."

At the end of the dance Hancock glares at the camera leaving a stern message, "Good luck, Ray Ray."

The performance was filmed in the mayor's office with a crew of his staffers ready to "get to work," as Hancock says at the end of the video.

Though the Denver mayor was a good sport about losing his bet, Amber Miller, Hancock's spokeswoman, declared that he initially had to postpone fulfilling his end of the bet due to a leg injury he suffered "during pre-game warm-ups" at the National Western Stock Show.
