Two Bangor Mayors Make Super Bowl Wager
The mayors from both Bangor, Maine, and Bangor, Pennsylvania, have put their regional products where their mouths are.
Our local Mayor Ben Sprague of Bangor, and Mayor Brooke Kerzner of the city of the same name in Pennsylvania, have made a "friendly wager" for the big game coming up on Sunday, February 4th, between our beloved New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
In a City of Bangor press release, Mayor Kerzner said, "We are not the least bit concerned with the New England Patriots winning Super Bowl 52. Nick Foles can soar like an Eagle even when he is surrounded by a bunch of Turkeys from New England. I have a feeling Tom Brady is all out of 4th quarter comebacks. #flyeaglesfly."
Kerzner of Bangor, Pennsylvania has wagered a Growler of Beer from Bangor Trust Brewing Company, an assortment of Chocolates from Chocolates on Broadway, a pound of fresh Roasted Coffee from Baby Harry Coffee Co, a goodie basket from Grace on Broadway, and two slate Quoit Boards (Bangor's version of horseshoes) to the Maine Veterans Home.
Meanwhile, our local Mayor Sprague said, "The people of Bangor, Maine are confident that Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the rest of the Patriots will do their jobs in bringing home a sixth title to New England. There may be two Bangors and two teams in this year's Super Bowl, but I think the ones from New England will be celebrating Super Bowl night."
Mayor Sprague has put us all on the line for a box of Maine whoopie pies from Governor's Restaurant in Bangor, a blueberry pie from Dysart's, a case of Moxie, some local Bangor souvenirs, and a collection of Stephen King books for the Bangor (Pennsylvania) Public Library.
Here's hoping that Mayor Sprague and the City of Bangor don't have to come up with $ for the cost of shipping stuff to PA, and that the Patriots trounce the Eagles!
