Bloomberg bets on Rangers with Ottawa mayor
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is betting big on the Rangers' playoff series against the Ottawa Senators, which kicked off Thursday night.
Hizzoner has entered into a friendly wager with Ottawa Mayor James A. Watson, he announced Thursday, and the stakes are pretty delicious.
If the Blueshirts take the series, Watson will send down a BeaverTail, from the iconic Ottawa pastry chain, along with a congratulatory tweet from the city's official Twitter account.
But if the Rangers lose, Bloomy will send up a blueberry cheesecake from Brooklyn's Court Pastry Shop, as well as his own municipal tweet.
"With the New York Giants’ Super Bowl victory still on our minds, I know New Yorkers are excited for another champion run by our Blueshirts," Bloomberg said.
