O'Malley and Oakland mayor make friendly game wagers

Ruppersberger calls Ravens rally in Towson

January 12, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Decked out in the jersey of Baltimore Raven quarterback Trent Dilfer, Mayor Martin O'Malley took a telephone call from Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown at his weekly news conference yesterday.

The pair discussed their wager on Sunday's American Football Conference championship game in Oakland, Calif.

If Baltimore wins, O'Malley gets a Mexican dinner in Oakland and a couple of cases of local beer. If the Raiders prevail, Brown can look forward to a bushel of Chesapeake Bay blue crabs and De- Groen's brew to wash them down.

In Towson today, Baltimore County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger will be the host of a "Rally for the Ravens" at 1:15 p.m. in the County Courts Plaza, between Chesapeake and Pennsylvania avenues.

And the Mass Transit Administration will open the Hamburg Street Light Rail stop in front of PSINet Stadium on Sunday for fans who want to watch broadcasts inside the stadium of the AFC and National Football Conference championship games.

Light Rail will be available to the Hamburg Street stop beginning at 11 a.m. and will run until a half-hour after the second game ends. The NFC game is at 12:30 p.m., and the Ravens' game at 4 p.m.
