Super Bowl XLVI
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino are starring in a Super Bowl ad to promote their Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign. The ad features both men clad in the jerseys of their city’s respective teams talking about how they “don’t agree” on sports or local cuisine.
“But we both support the second amendment,” Mayor Menino says in the ad.
“And believe America must do more to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” Mayor Bloomberg adds.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino announced they have entered into a “friendly wager” on the upcoming Super Bowl between the New York Giants and the loathsome New England Patriots. When the Giants win, one New York City family will “win” a trip to Boston with free hotels, food, tours, tickets to a Bruins or Celtics game, a concert and a photo with Mayor Menino. Mayor Bloomberg announced the Super Bowl bet in a press release, this afternoon.
“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,” said Mayor Bloomberg said.
Mayor Bloomberg’s press release didn’t explain why any New Yorkers in their right mind would ever want to visit Boston.
