Menino Bets On The Pats

Tom Menino has made the obligatory bet with NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg over the Super Bowl. But wait a sec -- neither team plays in either man's city.

This mayors'/governors' sports bet thing has gotten totally out of hand -- the list of items this time is endless. (clam chowder, Boston Creme pies, etc. etc.)

Menino is also, according to the press release, encouraging Bostonians to "show their support for the Patriots by wearing red, white, blue and silver starting Thursday." Or maybe starting Tuesday -- Menino is then quoted saying : "People here in Boston should start wearing their Patriots gear and the team colors from now until game day to show their support for the Patriots." (my emphasis.)
