Hockey bet with the Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio

Hockey bet with the Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio

The Ottawa Senators will open their second round playoff series against the New York Rangers in Ottawa at 7:00 pm on Thursday, April 27. As it is has now become tradition during for playoff games, I’ve established a friendly bet with the opposing team’s Mayor.

The Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio and I have placed a hockey bet that our respective teams will emerge victorious for this series.

The losing Mayor will:

  • Send a delicious food item from their city to the winning Mayor (New York bagels / Golden Palace egg rolls)
  • Wear the winning team’s jersey for half a day
  • Plant a tree native to the winning city’s team in their own city

Go Sens Go!
