Some may call it a penalty and others, a touchdown. Either way, The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens inked a sponsorship agreement to promote the State of Maryland's Affordable Care Act insurance exchange. The Maryland government says this is to help it's citizens learn more about the exchange's options.

According to The Daily Mail Online;

Government officials say: 'this is an opportunity to reach and engage fans while making them aware of the new opportunity they have for health coverage.'

Judicial Watch, a Washington, D.C. organization that files hundreds of public records requests every year, published a copy of the contract on Tuesday.

It's also being reported that The Baltimore Ravens will deliver a two-week ad campaign on their Facebook page, along with 5 tweets to its 382,000 followers.

Are you surprised? Are you upset? Is it a good thing or a bad thing informing football fans of their options? The actual ad hasn't been released yet, but you can take a moment to watch The President congratulate The Ravens on their season and please, feel free to comment.
