BOSTON (AP) — The mayors of Boston and Denver have a friendly wager on the AFC championship game, Denver green chile and Boston chocolates.
The Denver Broncos are hosting the New England Patriots for Saturday's game, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.
New Boston Mayor Martin Walsh says he and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock also have agreed the loser will wear the winning team jersey at next week's U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington.
If the Patriots win, Hancock will send Walsh a sampling of green chile, and a hoodie, cap and handmade skis from Denver's Icelantic Skis.
If it's the Broncos, Walsh will send five pounds of Phillips Candy House chocolate turtles and donate to the Denver Public Library inscribed books by more than a dozen Boston authors, including Dennis Lehane and Doris Kearns Goodwin.
