On the same day the city IT department posted a photo proving Marty Walsh actually tweets, the mayor's office also announced the stakes of the obligatory bet with his counterpart in Denver over this Sunday's Patriots/Broncos game:
In the event that the Denver Broncos defeat the Patriots, Mayor Walsh will:
Wear Mayor Hancock’s Denver Broncos jersey during a session of the U.S. Conference of Mayors next week.
- Deliver Mayor Hancock 5 lbs. of Boston’s famous chocolate turtles from Phillips Candy House in Dorchester.
- In honor of Denver’s expanded library hours, make a donation to Denver Public Libraries of inscribed books by Boston’s hometown authors, including Dennis Lehane, James Carroll, Doris Kearns Goodwin, David McCullough, Jackie MacMullan, Kevin Cullen and Shelley Murphy, Joe Finder, Irene Smalls, Kevin O'Connor and Mike Casey, Jarrett Krosoczka, Casey Sherman, Brian McGrory, Paul Harding, Hank Phillippi Ryan and more.
When the Patriots when, however, the mayor of Denver will wear a Patriots jersey during that conference and send Walsh some "green chile," a Denver hoodie, a Denver cap and some skis.
