The federal government may be in shutdown mode, but the City of Boston is still up and running, and that means it’s time to fulfill a certain Stanley Cup wager.
Boston mayor Tom Menino and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel agreed to a bet with each other when their teams made it to the Stanley Cup Final last spring. Alas, Chicago pushed through for the win in six games — meaning Boston was busy putting a Blackhawks video with a smiling Emanuel in it on the homepage of its website Wednesday morning.
The Hawks waited until they had a chance to run around with the Cup a little before providing the video, which joins the rest of the Menino promised if Chicago won.
Here’s what Chicago would have provided had the B’s been victorious.
