While we wait to hear the announcement of the requisite mayoral Super Bowl bet where the New Orleans mayor wagers a crate of gumbo and the Indianapolis mayor wagers.... um.... white basketball players?.... There's this interesting story via Hashmarks: It seems that the directors of art museums in Indianapolis and New Orleans are working on a Super Bowl wager of their own.
They're betting pieces of art!
It seems as if they've been haggling back and forth about the exact pieces to put on the line, but it's sounds wonderfully pretentious.
N.O. Museum Guy: Say there good fellow, do you care to go for a scrape between our two football organizations?
Indy Museum Guy: Why yes I do. I'm willing to wager this Monet that my Colts of Indianapolis shall throttle your Saints of New Orleans!
N.O. Museum Guy: My word! And I shall wager this fine Renoir piece that my Saints will trounce your Colts!
Indy Museum Guy: Nay! I believe we shall indeed rupture your pomposity!
What? All museum curators talk like early-1900 Englishmen. I should know. I am a man of learning and culture!*
