County Execs Join Redskins-Seahawks Wager
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — County executives in the Washington and Seattle area have their own bet going over the winner of Sunday’s playoff game between the Redskins and Seahawks.
Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker and his counterpart, Dow Constantine, the county executive of King County in Washington state, are wagering coffee. If the Redskins win, Baker will get coffee from the Seattle area, including Starbucks and Seattle’s Best. If the Seahawks win, Constantine will get a case of Eight O’Clock Coffee, which is based in Landover.
Baker told WTOP that he and Constantine have also agree to mentor in the other team’s jersey if their team loses.
The mayors of Washington and Seattle have promised to fly the other city’s flag if their team loses.
