Flames vs. Canucks: Mayors settle on playoff bet
Nenshi and Robertson have tête-à-tête on the Calgary Eyeopener
After a bit of trashtalking on the Calgary Eyeopener Wednesday morning, the mayors of Vancouver and Calgary announced the terms of a friendly bet for the Canucks vs. Flames playoff series.
Details of the three-part wager:
- Losing mayor must wear winning team's jersey at council meeting.
- Losing mayor will donate five pounds of food for every goal scored by the winning team to their local food bank.
- Losing mayor must read a poem written by winning mayor at the start of council meeting.
"I think 'Canucks and sucks' is too obvious," said Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi about the haiku he's planning to pen.
Nenshi has been bombarded with suggestions on Twitter to wager beer or beef — along with several jabs at Vancouver's riotous past.
"It's tough to predict how the Canucks will do against the Flames. We only see you guys in the playoff about once every 10 years when you actually make it," said Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.
"We'll do the job disposing of you in short order," he said.
