Denver mayor Michael Hancock is a man of his word.
Hancock made a friendly wager with Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on the Broncos-Ravens AFC divisional contest. After Denver lost Hancock was obligated to perform Ray Lewis' famous "Squirrel" dance.
But before he could bust out his moves, Hancock was injured when he was coming off stage at the National Western Stock Show. Hancock's office explained that, while he was injured in pregame warmups, he "expected to be on the field in the second half, ready to carry out the game plan and fulfill his end of the wager."
Hancock probably could have used his injury as an excuse to avoid doing the dance. After all, no one outside of Baltimore would have remembered that the mayor agreed to the wager in the first place.
But Hancock fought on, learned the dance, and performed it recently. His office even made a cheeky video to prove it. And you know what? He's not that bad:
No word on whether Hancock used deer-antler spray to speed up his recovery.
