    After a disappointing playoff loss for the Baltimore Ravens, fans will get a small victory courtesy of Maryland’s governor. 

    Gov. Martin O'Malley's office said he has settled a wager with his Indiana counterpart over last weekend's football game. The Colts beat the Ravens 20-3.
    Part of the wager called for the losing governor to put the opponent's flag on his vehicle, and a pennant with a Colts logo could be seen attached to O'Malley's vehicle next to the statehouse Wednesday.
    But you have to read the fine print! O'Malley attached an old Baltimore Colts pennant rather than an Indianapolis Colts flag. 
    The Colts left Baltimore in 1984, and many residents still hold a grudge.
    O'Malley also held up the rest of the deal, sending crab cakes and Smith Island cake to Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels. No word if the crab was imitation.
