Mayor Hancock Fulfills Wager on Broncos v. Patriots Game

DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock today fulfilled his Broncos-Patriots wager with Boston Mayor Tom Menino. The Mayor wore Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s #12 jersey in public and also secured some of Colorado’s finest beef for Mayor Menino.

“As a stalwart Broncos fan, it was certainly not easy to put on that jersey, but it was well worth the wager to support such an outstanding season,” Mayor Hancock said. “The City of Denver was proud to come together to support our team. The Broncos gave us an exciting season and a dramatic playoff victory, and we can't wait for next season.”

Hancock agreed to wear a Patriots jersey at a public event. He kept his word by wearing a jersey, donated by Northfield Stapleton’s Mobile Memorabilia, during half-time at the Denver Nuggets game at the Pepsi Center earlier this evening.

The Mayor also secured a large combination pack of some of Colorado’s finest homegrown beef from Arvada’s Ralston Valley Beef. The “steak dinner” sent to Mayor Menino will contain 40 pounds of premium natural beef, including “Tebow tenderloins.”

“We want to thank the participation of our Denver area businesses in supporting their team,” Mayor Hancock said. “I hope Mayor Menino shares this unbelievable dinner so people in Boston will know why Colorado’s beef is some of the best in the nation. Just like our beer.”
