ok ok ok, AIDS Alliance thrift shop, but still...full story and a museum bet between cities:http://dailyjournal.net/view/story/1b436462c59a47c48819b40ea7419c16/US--Broncos-Fever/

In the event of a Broncos win, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said he would send Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock salmon, Dungeness crab, a bicycle made by Rodriguez Bicycles in Seattle and auction off a blown-glass piece by internationally known Seattle artist Dale Chihuly to benefit a Denver program for the homeless. Murray will also wear Broncos pajamas in public if the Broncos win.

Hancock is putting up green chile, Denver's favorite fiery stew; a hoodie; ball cap; and handmade skis. Should the Broncos lose, Hancock will also auction off a Denver-themed item to support the Seattle-based Lifelong AIDS Alliance and wear an ensemble put together by the Lifelong AIDS Alliance thrift shop.

Also something cool from the article...

Denver is encouraging all business owners to light up their buildings in orange and blue. Even the home of the Colorado Supreme Court has "Go Broncos" banners, and a buffalo statue at the history museum is wearing a giant Peyton Manning jersey. Airport trains are playing a recorded message from cornerback Champ Bailey asking them to "Unite in Orange."

I really don't see the issue and I like the sentiment. This is one of the better Mayor's bets I have ever seen.

The thrift shop is obviously a reference to Macklemore.

There is no issue. Its a good bet all the way around, especially since they're both incorporating philanthropic endeavors into the bet. The Mane just has a whacky sense of humor that you're picking up as us being assholes. Stick around awhile and you'll probably start to get it.

I think I inferred something that wasn't there.

We should be able to mount Bluecifer on the Space Needle.

You're a Seahags fan. It's what you do.

That's our damned Demon Horse and we will not part with it!

We can just commission the artist to make a replica for the Space Needle.


Oh wait….

I am pretty sure the artist there nailed what I had in mind.

Macklemore. Didn't we see a picture of him wearing a Vikings shirt not too long ago? Seems like the perfect Seattle fan.
