Seattle and Denver mayors make Super Bowl Bet, one gets crabs

It is Super Bowl week and one of the longest standing traditions is that mayors of the respective city’s make a friendly wager on the big game. This year, that honor falls on Seattle’s Ed Murray and Denver’s Michael Hancock.

Both are wagering many items, including dressing up in a ridiculous outfit. If you guess that a Macklemore thrift shop reference was involved, you’d be correct. Also, one mayor will wind up with crabs.

Here are the details of the wager, from the Seattle Times:

· If the Seattle Seahawks win the Super Bowl, Mayor Hancock would send Denver green chili, a ball cap, hoodie and handmade skis from Denver’s own Icelantic Skis, a Denver-themed item that will be auctioned to support the Lifelong AIDS Alliance, and Mayor Hancock would wear a costume curated by the Lifelong AIDS Alliance thrift shop in the spirit of Macklemore’s Grammy-award-winning song.

· If the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl, Mayor Murray would send salmon and Dungeness crab, a road bike from Seattle’s Rodriguez Bicycles, a piece of blown glass art by Seattle’s own Dale Chihuly, and Mayor Ed Murray will wear Bronco pajamas on PJ Day, February 6, to raise awareness for Denver’s Road Home, a ten year plan to end homelessness.
