BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — As the Rams and Patriots prepare to play on Sunday, everyone's getting in on Super Bowl fever—even the city council leaders in Boston and Los Angeles.
On Wednesday night, Boston City Council President Andrea Campbell tweeted this video, tagging LA's City Council President, Herb Wesson:
“The stakes couldn’t be higher for Sunday’s Super Bowl," Campbell said in a release. "While we’re all still on top of the world from the World Series victory over the Dodgers, it’s time for another big win – against LA again. We’re so proud of our Patriots, and we’re ready to remind the Rams that no matter where they’re from—LA or St. Louis—they’re no match for New England.”
Then, Wesson responded with a video of his own:
The two worked out the details of the bet: The Council President in the losing city has to wear the jersey of the winning team at their first council meeting or public appearance following the Super Bowl. Wesson offered a box of See's Candies, a bag of Coffee Bean Coffee, and wine from San Antonio Winery if the Patriots win; if the Rams win, Campbell offered a shaving kit from Gillette, Phillips Chocolates, and Dunkin Donuts coffee.

"Prevailing winds blow from west to east, and I have a feeling it's the west that will prevail this Sunday," said Wesson in a release. "I'm looking forward to seeing Ms. Campbell sport Rams gold and blue after they bring it home on Sunday. It's redemption time for the City of Los Angeles."
