Betting on Cactus
Well, actually they’re betting on the Superbowl.
Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs has thrown down a wager to Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl.
If the Arizona Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1, a cactus must be planted outside Heinz Field to remind Pittsburgh fans of the desert underdog’s victory.
Interesting that the mayor of Glendale is offering the wager. I’ve been to Glendale, and it’s not that big. Phoenix may resent the Card’s name change, but still, Glendale? Of course, I’ve also been to Wasilla, AK and Glendale is certainly bigger than Wasilla. But then Larry Fitzgerald’s shoe size is bigger than Wasilla.
