Charger Bet Will Leave One Mayor Out In The Cold

Posted: Updated:
San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl have agreed to a wager over Sunday's playoff game between the Chargers and the Steelers, it was announced today.

If San Diego wins the game, Sanders will send Chargers swim trunks and a surf board donated by Bob's Mission Surf Shop to Ravenstahl, who will then have to return a photo of himself in the Chargers swim trunks, standing with the surfboard in front of one of Pittsburgh's three rivers.

"I'm trying to decide what color frame would go best with my photo of Mayor Ravenstahl," Sanders said. "It sure isn't going to be fun being outdoors in swim trunks in Pittsburgh this time of year."

If Pittsburgh wins the game, Ravenstahl will send a Steelers jersey and winter cap and a pair of skis to Sanders, who then must have his photo taken wearing wearing the Steelers gear and holding the skis in the Penguin Encounter exhibit at SeaWorld.

The Chargers take on the Steelers in the second round of the playoffs Sunday in Pittsburgh.
