Bloomberg bets big with Boston's mayor over Super Bowl
One lucky family is going to Boston for free - if the Giants beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced his friendly wager Monday with his Boston mayor Thomas Menino. The losing city will host a family of four from the winning town and give them free meals at restaurants, tours of landmarks, and a photo with the hosting mayor.
"New York sports teams have a history of cleaning up when they go to Boston - and now our fans will have a chance to do the same." Bloomberg said.
Winners of the wager will be chosen through a lottery, and the losing city will give information how to enter after the Sunday's game. .
