Boston Paying Up After Stanley Cup Loss to Chicago
CHICAGO (AP/WGGB) — A video celebrating the Chicago Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup championship will appear on the city of Boston’s official website.
The video, which will also highlight the city of Chicago, is a result of a friendly wager between Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Boston Mayor Tom Menino.
The video will be shown on the Boston website only on Wednesday. Emanuel says the video will show hockey fans celebrating with the Stanley Cup and highlight “what makes Chicago a great city.”
Emanuel and Menino placed bets on the outcome of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals series. In addition to the video posting, Chicago also received, among other things, a sampling of Boston’s local foods and a tree planted in the schoolyard of Emanuel’s choosing.
