DENVER (AP) -- Denver Mayor Michael Hancock insists he is not trying to welch on a bet after he injured his leg at the stock show.
Hancock lost a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake that requires him to perform linebacker Ray Lewis' famous pre-game dance after the Denver Broncos lost to the Ravens.
The mayor's spokeswoman, Amber Miller, initially said Hancock suffered an unspecified injury during "pre-game" warm-ups on Monday to pay off the wager, but later said he pulled a muscle and will fulfill his promise after he heals.
On Saturday, the top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a 38-35 home loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
