DENVER - It's painful to do, but a good airport always pays up on a bet.

On Tuesday, a Seattle Seahawks flag was raised at Denver International Airport as the result of a lost Super Bowl wager.

Denver's Manager of Aviation Kim Day made the wager with Mark Reis, the director of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The winning team's airport would agree to fly the opponent's flag in a public place for 24 hours.

As a result of the Super Bowl XLVIII loss by the Denver Broncos, the Seahawks flag is flying at DIA.

Airport staff say they "remain confident" the Broncos will bring home the Lombardi Trophy someday, and the airport will be the first place to welcome home the team as Super Bowl champions.
