Nutter makes hockey bet with Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown

    As the NHL quarterfinals approach, Mayor Michael Nutter has made a bet with Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown as the Flyers and Sabres advance. The rather tame agreement involves hats and service.

    No antics here, just good old fashioned community service. There isn’t even a food offering like the one agreed upon by Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett and Wis. Gov. Scott Walker when then Steelers played the Packers in the Super Bowl.

    The mayors will each don the winning team’s hat while performing service in their respective cities. Nutter will participate in a Let’s Read. Let’s Move. program as part of Pres. Barack Obama’s United We Service initiative. Brown will server lunches to seniors with the help of the Salvation Army.

    Gentlemen, can we at least see some face painting?
