49ers Vs. Giants: Mayors Place Bet On NFC Championship Game

As is often the case for big games, the mayors of San Francisco and New York came up with a friendly wager for Sunday. If the 49ers win, New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg will rename 49th Street in Manhattan 49ers Street. Additionally, he will send a dozen New York bagels from Bagel Oasis In Queens. If the Giants win, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will deck out a cable car in blue and red with Giants flags for a day along Powell Street. Additionally, he will send Boudin sourdough bread.

It was amusing to note that initial bet negotiations included renaming New York City as Jed York City. I'm not surprised that one didn't quite work out, although that would have been a pretty sweet bet. I'm not sure what San Francisco could be renamed to accommodate that.

For the coming week, San Francisco's City Hall and Coit Tower are lit up in red and gold.
