Before we get too carried away, let's not forget the big story of the day: Luke Ravenstahl Tebowing to settle his bet with Denver's mayor.
Here's coverage from the Denver Post:
Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravensthal this morning made good on a wager he made with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock over Sunday’s NFL Playoff game between the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Broncos of course won the game, forcing Ravensthal to do the unthinkable — wear a Broncos’ jersey and take to the knee in a pose made popular by Broncos’ quarterback Tim Tebow.
UPDATE: In a comment to news media, Ravensthal said:
“This is not something I ever thought I’d have to do, and it’s certainly not something I’m looking forward to,” Ravenstahl said according to the 9News website. “However, we’re good sports here in Pittsburgh, and I want to congratulate Denver on a great win.”
Meanwhile this morning, Hancock put on his own Broncos’ T-shirt and pajama bottoms on for a press conference announcing the annual pajama party that raises money for Denver’s Road Home program for homeless.
Hancock also announced today that Friday again will be “Orange Friday,” encouraging people to wear the Broncos’ colors in support of the team that plays the New England Patriots on Saturday.
Hancock said he is still weighing what to wager with Boston’s Mayor Thomas M. Menino and is thinking about asking for famous New England lobsters if the Broncos win and offering beef from Colorado if the Broncos lose.
