FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

MAYOR NUTTER, MAYOR LEPPERT MAKE FRIENDLY WAGER ON PLAYOFF GAME

Philadelphia, January 6, 2010 - Mayor Michael A. Nutter and Mayor Tom Leppert and have entered into a friendly wager on the outcome of this Saturday’s NFL playoff game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys.

Both mayors pledged to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity regardless of which team is victorious. Both are longtime supporters of Habitat. The bet: The losing team’s mayor will provide lunch for the winning mayor’s team of volunteers.

"Having lulled the Cowboys into a false sense of security, the Eagles will come out and dominate the Cowboys in a game that actually matters," said Mayor Nutter. "We will make sure there is an extra seat on the plane back to Philly for barbecue and Dr. Pepper."

“After watching the Cowboys play the last few games, I’m very confident we’ll be keeping our delicious barbecue right here in Dallas,” said Mayor Leppert.

If Philly wins on Saturday, Mayor Leppert will provide Mayor’s Nutter’s team at Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia with Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse barbecue and Dr. Pepper.

If Dallas wins, Mayor Nutter will send Mayor Leppert’s team at the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity some Philly cheesesteaks and Tastykakes, both signature food items of Philadelphia.

“After watching the Cowboys play the last few games, I’m very confident we’ll be keeping our delicious barbecue right here in Dallas,” said Mayor Leppert. “I can taste those Philly cheesecakes already!”

Last year the Eagles went to the NFC Championship game. The Cowboy’s have not won a play-off game since 1996.
