Seattle, Denver mayors make friendly Super Bowl bets

The mayors of Seattle and Denver have made their friendly Super Bowl bets, promoting local businesses and causes.

In a call Monday, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said in the unlikely event of a Broncos win, he would send Denver Mayor Michael Hancock salmon, Dungeness crab, and a bicycle made by Rodriguez Bicycles in Seattle. He also says a piece of blown glass from artist Dale Chihuly would be auctioned to benefit Denver’s Road Home program for the homeless.

If the Seahawks win, Mayor Hancock says he’ll send a sampling of Denver’s green chile and a hoodie, ball cap and skis handmade by Denver’s locally grown Icelantic Skis. He also says he’ll auction off a Denver-themed item to support the Seattle-based Lifelong AIDS Alliance.
