Mayors make bet. Mayor Nutter and Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley announced Thursday that they have bet on the outcome of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Whether the Flyers win or lose, Nutter will volunteer in a community garden with the Mayor's Office of Sustainability.
If the Flyers win, Nutter will donate food grown in local gardens to Philabundance, the region's largest hunger relief organization.
If the Blackhawks win, Nutter will donate the food grown to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Chicago's mayor wagered a large assortment of local Chicago food, drink and other products. If the Flyers win, Philadelphia will donate the goods to charities.
Comcast rivals bet, too. Comcast SportsNet networks in Chicago and Philadelphia, respectively the homes of the Stanley Cup-contending Blackhawks and Flyers, also have made a wager to defend their hometown pride in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals.
If the Flyers win, Comcast SportsNet Chicago will serve Deep Dish Pizzas from Giordano's to Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia employees.
Should the Blackhawks win, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia will serve Philly cheesesteaks from Campos to Comcast SportsNet Chicago employees.
