BALTIMORE (WJZ)–Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee agreed to a friendly wager on the outcome of this weekend’s Super Bowl.
The winning mayor will host the mayor from the losing team for an AmeriCorps Day of Service. In addition, the losing mayor will visit the local crab market, donning the jersey of the winning team and crack the region’s well known crustacean–Dungeness crab in San Francisco or blue crab in Baltimore.
“The Baltimore Ravens reached the Super Bowl this year with a combination of devastating defense and flawless offense,” said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. “Their victory on Sunday will further cement Baltimore’s legacy as a great football city and serve as the perfect capstone to the Hall of Fame career of Ray Lewis.”
“The Niners don’t always go to the Super Bowl, but when they do, they win,” said Mayor Ed Lee. “Behind the leadership of Coach Jim Harbaugh, the red & gold are going to finish the job against the Ravens, bringing home the city’s sixth Lombardi Trophy!”
The Ravens will face the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. in New Orleans. WJZ-TV will have complete coverage.
