1/26/2018 - Mayors of Bangor make wager on Super Bowl LII

Mayor Ben Sprague of Bangor, Maine and Mayor Brooke Kerzner of Bangor, Pennsylvania announced today that they are making a friendly wager on the results of Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. 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 Brooke Kerzner of Bangor, Pennsylvania 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 "

As part of the wager, Mayor Sprague is offering 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. Stephen King is a resident of Bangor, Maine.

Mayor Kerzner is willing to bet 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.
