Bangor vs. Bangor this Super Bowl Sunday

BANGOR - Mayors from both Pennsylvania and Maine are joining in on the Super Bowl fun by making a wager on which state's team will win.

There's a little bet between Mayor Ben Sprague of Bangor, Maine and Mayor Brook Kerzner of Bangor (BanGER) Pennsylvania. And yes, they are spelled the same but pronounced differently.


The two mayors have placed bets on whether the Eagles or the Patriots will win Super Bowl 52.


Sprague said "I thought hey this could be kind of fun to have a little bet between the two cities and get a little rivalry going. It's all in good fun of course, but I do hope the Patriots and Bangor, Maine will be victorious on Super Bowl night."


As part of the wager, Sprague is offering a box of Governor's whoopie pies, Dysarts blueberry pie and a collection of Stephen King books for Bangor's library in Pennsylvania.


The Pennsylvania mayor is wagering beer, chocolates, and a game board made of slate, since Banger is a slate city.
