DENVER (CBS4) – After winning a bet with the mayor of Pittsburgh last weekend, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock had to pay up after losing a bet with Boston Mayor Tom Menino this weekend.

At Sunday night’s Nugget’s game Hancock sported a New England Patriots jersey in front of the Pepsi Center crowd. The mayor said it was tough to do, but wanted to make good on his promise.

“As a stalwart Broncos fan, it was certainly not easy to put on that jersey, but it was well worth the wager to support such an outstanding season,” Hancock said. “The City of Denver was proud to come together to support our team. The Broncos gave us an exciting season and a dramatic playoff victory, and we can’t wait for next season.”

As part of the bet he will also send 40 pounds of premium Colorado beef to the mayor of Boston, including some Tebow tenderloins.

“We want to thank the participation of our Denver area businesses in supporting their team,” Hancock said. “I hope Mayor Menino shares this unbelievable dinner so people in Boston will know why Colorado’s beef is some of the best in the nation. Just like our beer.”
