Mayor James bets Mayor Ballard that the Chiefs will have all the “Luck” on Saturday

January 3, 2014 - KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

Today, Mayor Sly James of Kansas City, Missouri issued a bet on the outcome of Saturday’s AFC wildcard game to Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.  When the Chiefs proceed down the playoff path to the Superbowl, Mayor Ballard will send two of his local favorites, St. Elmo’s World Famous Shrimp Cocktail and the Flying Cupcake’s signature red velvet cupcakes, to Kansas City.

Upon hearing that, Mayor James said, “Shrimp from Indiana?  Can we just have the NCAA headquarters back and consider us even?”  He added, “2013 was a great year for Kansas City sports and I am looking forward to kicking the new year off in a big way with a big win on Saturday. I’m confident that the Colts’ Luck will come to an end this weekend.”

In the unlikely event of a Chiefs loss, Mayor James will send Mayor Ballard a gourmet selection of Kansas City barbeque.  However, Mayor James expects to keep it all for himself as he celebrates the next step in a great season for Coach Reid and our team.
