Mayor Jim Kenney doesn't seem to fully understand the concept of a sports wager.
The general rule I like to follow: if you win a bet, you GET SOMETHING OF VALUE in return.
Now, the Mayor of Philadelphia won a bet with the city of Brockton, Mass. and he has to SEND THEM STUFF.
Makes no sense.
Anyway, I guess the city of Brockton now has to dress their Rocky Marciano statue up in Eagles gear. Lulz. So Mr. Kenney is shipping them some goods. I hope the people of New England had to pay for it.
As Eagles fans know all too well, the official Eagles gear is not cheap.
Packing away some Eagles gear and sending it your way @MayorBillCarp - thanks for being such a good sport! Look forward to seeing the @Eagles wings flying high on Brockton's Rocky! #FlyEaglesFlypic.twitter.com/Xal5l7VSqE
