Martin O'Malley Backs Out Of Colts Bet (PHOTO)

Before the Colts and Ravens faced off for a shot at playing for the AFC Championship, the governors of Indiana and Maryland made a friendly bet. Maryland governor O'Malley agreed that he would send crab cakes to his counterpart in Indiana, Mitch Daniels, if the Ravens lost. Daniels would send pie and shrimp cocktails if the Ravens won. Additionally, the bet stipulated that the losing governor would have to fly the flag of the opposing team on his car.

The Colts dominated Baltimore on Saturday. O'Malley sent crab cakes to Indiana, but was a bit sneaker about displaying the flag. Instead of flying an Indianapolis Colts flag, he used a Baltimore Colts throwback. The Colts, of course, played in Baltimore until they moved to Indianapolis in 1983, a sore point for many fans in Maryland. Scroll down for a photo.
