Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg say they have made a gentleman's bet on the outcome of Sunday's Super Bowl game.

When New York Giants win, a New York City family will receive a free trip to Boston, complete with a stay at the Ritz Carlton, dinner at Legal Sea Foods and box seats to a Bruins or Celtics game.

If by some unbelievable magic jinx occurs and the New England Patriots happen to win, a Boston family will get a trip to New York paid for by tourism-industry companies, with dinner at the Russian Tea Room, tickets to "Phantom of the Opera" and a VIP tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

With five days left and counting, Mayor Bloomberg says the winners will be able to enter an online lottery, once that long awaited Super Bowl game is over and the Giants win.

Sorry about the editorial comments. It won't happen again. Not till another major sporting match like the World Series...etc.
