Colo. governor paying off lamb chop Broncos bet

DENVER (AP) — It’s time for Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper to pay up for the Denver Broncos’ loss to Baltimore in their NFL playoff game last week.

Hickenlooper grilled lamb chops Thursday and was mailing a package of ready-to-cook chops to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley to make good on their bet.

The payoff includes 12 lamb chops from the Triple M Bar Ranch in Manzanola in southeast Colorado.

Hickenlooper would have received a dozen Chesapeake Bay crab cakes if the Broncos had won.

The top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a 38-35 home loss Saturday to the Ravens.
