O'Malley taunts Indiana governor on Ravens-Colts
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) is riding the Ravens' playoff romp for all it's worth. First he complained that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D), didn't pay up when he bet New England lobsters on a Patriots victory in the wild-card weekend. On Wednesday, he boldly taunted Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, whom he said was avoiding a wager on Saturday's matchup between the Ravens and the AFC's No. 1 seed Indianapolis Colts.
For full effect, here's O'Malley's unedited comments to reporters outside the State House moments ago:
"I've tried calling Gov. Mitch Daniels (R), but I think he's a scared. He will not answer the phone. He will not take the bet. Gov. Mitch Daniels is scared of making a bet with the Colts and the Ravens. Not only did they slink out of town in the middle of the night, but now their governor is afraid to take a bet on who is going to win this game. If Gov. Mitch Daniels is listening, governor, pick up the phone. It's not a big deal. Your team slinked out of here in the middle of the night. The Ravens are coming to Indianapolis. Let's pick up the phone. Let's have a gentlemanly bet. Don't be afraid, just pick up the phone, Mitch, c'mon. We'll put up crab cakes or we'll put up Smith Island cake, and you can put up whatever it is that Indiana does."
O'Malley, by the way, also noted he's still waiting for his lobsters.
