So you know those dumb mayoral bets made on every major sporting event, the ones supposed to show off the locally made products? Well, the Boston and Denver mayors made them this year ... and, as usual, they're dumb and full of corporate sponsorship.
Seriously, it's all just officially labeled merchandise.
To Boston: 100 Quiznos sandwiches
100 cups of Celestial Seasonings teas
100 servings of Great Western tortilla chips
100 servings on Epic Valley salsa
100 scoops Liks Rocky Road ice cream
100 cups Legal Seafoods New England clam chowder
100 cups Dunkin' Donuts coffee
100 Dunkin' Donuts Boston Crème doughnuts
100 "Curse Reversed" ice cream bars from Brigham's Ice Cream
12 pints "Boston You're My Home" ice cream from Brigham's Ice Cream
Someday, we will see our dream of one city betting their homeless problem against another city's crack epidemic.
