Gambling in Maryland

In the Maryland capital, where gambling is an on-again / off-again hot button issue, two politicians are putting their dignity on the line over the reinvigoration of a decades-old rivalry.

Delegate Herb McMillan (R-Annapolis) and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller have made a bet on the Sept. 3 football game between the University of Maryland and the Naval Academy, a game that hasn't been played in 41 years.

If the Navy Midshipmen win, Miller, a Maryland graduate, will attend the Senate's opening ceremonies wearing a Navy jersey and hat. If Maryland wins, McMillan, a Naval Academy graduate, will don the equivalent Maryland gear.

The betters have plenty of time to mull their coming humility ... the opening ceremonies are January 11, 2006.
