Mayors Of Dallas And New Orleans Make A ‘Friendly’ Bet For Saints-Cowboys Game
The Dallas Cowboys are coming to town to face the New Orleans Saints and there's a lot on the line.
For Dallas, they're facing a Saints team who is still salty about losing to the Cowboys by 3 points in AT&T Stadium last season. For New Orleans, they're facing a red-hot Cowboys team flying high at 3-0 as they continue to find their identity with no Drew Brees who is currently rehabbing after thumb surgery.
Basically, this matchup is garnering a lot of attention and the respective mayor of each team's city is getting in on the fun. Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson reached out to New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell to make a little wager on Sunday's game.
The whole deal went down on Twitter.
This is something that the Dallas Mayor has done with all of Dallas' opponents so far this year. The only city's mayor to play along has been Miami Mayor Francis Suarez who shipped a key lime pie to Johnson after his Dolphins were taken down by Dallas in Week 3.
Cantrell has faith in the Saints and believes the fan base will be the big difference come Sunday. Let's hope she doesn't have to send any jambalaya or etouffee.
