County executives engage in friendly football wager
January 8, 2013
Leaders in the home communities for the Seattle Seahawks and the Washington Redskins engaged in a friendly rivalry in the days before the teams met on the gridiron Jan. 6.
King County Executive Dow Constantine and Prince George’s County, Md., Executive Rushern Baker each put up a case of coffee on the outcome.
The county CEOs agreed for the loser to wear the winning team’s jersey to community service events in January. The effort is meant to promote National Mentoring Month and Martin Luther King Jr. Day service projects.
Baker is poised to wear a Seahawks jersey after the Redskins fell, 24-14, at FedEx Field.
The java came from local producers — Starbucks, Seattle’s Best, Diva Espresso and other locally roasted coffees from King County, and 8 O’Clock Bean Coffee from Cheverly, Md.
