Recently elected Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley joined Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis during the coaches weekly press conference, pushing for the city of Cincinnati to buy out the remaining tickets to sell out Sunday's game before Thursday's deadline. Cincinnati announced Sunday night that over 10,000 tickets remained for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers.
During the presser, Mayor Cranley told reporters that he and San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria have placed a wager.
If the Cincinnati Bengals win, San Diego's mayor will send craft beers and sport a Bengals uniform -- what, no fuzzy dice for the street cars? If the Chargers win, Cranley will send Gold Star, Graeter's and Montgomery Inn (not the actual companies... just some stuff).
The Bengals will host the San Diego Chargers this Sunday with a 1 p.m. kickoff time on CBS -- except for maybe Cincinnati, considering that the mayor is now involved with pushing tickets.
