Ken Ulman's Ravens/Redskins challenge to Rushern Baker

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman threw down the football gauntlet Wednesday to his Prince George's counterpart.

With the Ravens set to take on the Redskins on Sunday, Ulman -- a huge Ravens fan -- sent an online challenge to Rushern Baker. If the Ravens lose, he'd shame himself publicly by wearing a red and gold jersey for an entire day.

Ulman isn't afraid to let his purple flag fly -- even around the office. Two years ago, when the Super Bowl bid was looking possible, Ulman declared one Friday "Willis McGahee Day-hee" and renamed food in the office cafeteria -- there were "Harbaugh hot dogs" and "Todd Heaps of chili over Ray Rice."

On Sunday, if the Ravens win, Ulman wants Baker to march around Redskins country in Haloti Ngata gear.

No word yet if they have a deal -- but it sounds like they could. Baker tweeted in response: "So County, should I accept this challenge from Howard Co. Exec @kenulman? Wouldn't he look good in a @RG3 jersey?"

Late Wednesday, folks seemed to be telling Baker to go for it.
