San Fran mayor Lee pays off Super Bowl bet in Baltimore

Posted on 27 April 2013 by WNST Staff

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee was in Baltimore on Friday to settle a bet he made with the city’s mayor on the outcome of the Super Bowl game between the 49ers and Ravens in February.

Lee agreed on a friendly wager with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ahead of the big game in New Orleans on Feb. 3, in which the 49ers fell 34-31.

As the losing mayor, Lee visited the winning city and started his day cooking Maryland blue crabs at Faidley’s Seafood at Lexington Market.

Rawlings-Blake then hosted Lee in a day of service.

The mayors attended a kick-off revitalization event at a vacant lot with Baltimore-based organization Power in Dirt and AmeriCorps, which is a federal community service agency.

Other events scheduled for the day were a repair of a police station, and a tutoring session with the city initiative, “Third Grade Reads,” which trains volunteers to be reading tutors for first-, second-, and third-graders who are reading below grade level.
