San Diego Mayor offers friendly wager to Cincy mayor over Chargers-Bengals
Monday, December 30, 2013
Craft beer, ice cream and chili will be at stake when the San Diego Chargers play the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday thanks to a bet made between the mayors of the two playoff-bound cities.
San Diego interim Mayor Todd Gloria said on his Twitter account that he wagered craft beer from Thorn St. Brewery and Hillcrest Brewing Co., and promised to wear a Bengals jersey at his next media briefing if the Chargers come up short in Sunday's wild card AFC game in Cincinnati.
Gloria said if the Bolts prevail, Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley will send him food samples from three chains based in the Queen City -- Gold Star Chili, Graeter's ice cream and barbecue from Montgomery Inn.
The teams will play for the second time this season. The Bengals downed the Chargers 17-10 at Qualcomm Stadium last month.
