INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Colts aren’t the only ones recovering after the loss to Baltimore.
The Monday night prime time football game created some friendly competition between Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett.
Following the Colts’ loss to the Ravens, Scott tweeted after a photo of a Mayflower storage trailer and said, “Turn off the lights! @LJ_era8 does it again #RavensFlock. Hey Indy don’t go to BWI (Baltimore Washington International Airport) leave the same way you left last time.”
The Mayflower is in reference to the moving company that helped move the Colts team from Baltimore to Indianapolis in the early 1980s.
News 8’s Alexis Rogers asked both mayors ahead of the game which city has the best food, the team with the best dancers and players with the most swag.
Hogsett said, “If the long season remains, our fortunes will no doubt improve, and maybe we’ll have another chance to play the Ravens in some playoff game and that’s the only one that really matters.”
The friendly competition even came with a bet. Scott said he wants to see Hogsett eat whatever the great food of Indianapolis is, which Hogsett mentioned is a tenderloin sandwich, in a Ravens jersey and to admit that the Colts team name is the Indianapolis Mayflowers.
We think it’s safe to say that the Indianapolis mayor has decided not to act on the bet.
