Howard County Executive Ken Ulman is fed up and he wants Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker to know.
“I’m sick of hearing about the Redskins’ new quarterback,” Ulman said in a statement. “RG III will be TWO little and TWO late to handle the stifling Ravens defense," he said, referring to Redskins' quarterback Robert Lee Griffin III.
Ulman and Rushern are supposed to attend this weekend's "Beltway Battle" between the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens at the Redskins' stadium.
Ulman issued a challenge to Baker in advance of the game: if the Redskins win, he'll light up the Howard County government buildings in the Redskins' colors, burgundy and gold—and he'll wear an RG3 jersey to work.
But if the Ravens win? Then Ulman wants Baker to wear Ulman’s personal favorite jersey—number 92, Haloti Ngata—and declare “Purple Friday” in Prince George's County.
Ulman has not heard back from Baker, according to the statement, but he doesn't sound worried.
A spokesman for Baker responded, " “Oh, it’s on. Stay tuned for County Executive Baker’s response.”
"While the Ravens are set to lock up their division," he wrote, "The only way the Redskins will make it to the playoffs is on Play Station 3.”
