Ulman, Baker Agree to Redskins-Ravens Bet

The two county executives have a lot riding on Sunday's game.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Baltimore-Washington corridor: it is on.

That's the message out from Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman ahead of Sunday's Ravens-Redskins matchup at FedEx Field. The two sparred on Fox 5 Thursday night, agreeing to a friendly wager over the game.

Ulman, a proud Ravens fan, had thrown down the gauntlet earlier by offering to wear the jersey of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III if Washington wins. 

But if the Ravens win, Ulman proposed that Baker would have to wear a Haloti Ngata jersey and make it a "purple friday" next week in Prince George's County.

Baker upped the ante even more during their on-air interview, suggesting that Ulman would have to pick up trash along Prince George's County roads while singing "Hail to the Redskins" should the Ravens lose. Ulman, apparently confident of a win, accepted.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sunday.
