Nutter Still Waiting on Cheesecake from NYC Mayor

Nutter Still Waiting on Cheesecake from NYC Mayor

Mayor Nutter says he's still waiting on the cheescake NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg promised him if the Eagles beat the Giants on Sunday. But he says he's sure it will show up soon -- and that it will be appreciated.

"I've been asked by about my half my staff members when the cheesecake would come in," he joked.

Looking ahead to the NFC Championship game against the Arizona Cardinals, Nutter said he has made a wager with the mayor of Glendale, AZ, Elaine Scruggs. (The game will be played at the University of Phoenix stadium in Glendale.)

It's a chocolatey bet.

UPDATE: We had this convoluted bet backwards. The losing mayor will get chocolates from the winning city, which he or she must then distribute to their City Council. Nutter has put up Hersheys. He said he couldn't remember the chocolate made in Glendale, but it's proabably this place, called Cerreta's.

Nutter said he had also missed a call from Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, so there may be another bet in the offing. We'll keep you posted.
