The mayors of Chapel Hill and Durham had a friendly wager (and by that we mean “weak a** wager”) on Wednesday night’s game between UNC and Duke.

"If Duke loses, Chapel Hill Mayor Kevin Foy will receive tickets to a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center, the newly opened largest performing arts theater in the Carolinas,” according to a release from the mayor’s offices.

“If UNC loses, Durham Mayor Bill Bell is invited to a night on Franklin Street and Asian cuisine at the Lantern Restaurant, which the News and Observer ranked as the 2008 No. 1 restaurant in the Triangle.”

But wait, there's more...

If UNC wins, Foy will supply Bell with a Carolina blue sweatshirt to wear at the next Durham City Council meeting. If Duke wins, Bell will give Foy a Duke blue sweatshirt to wear at the next Chapel Hill Town Council meeting.

Now, the mayor wearing a UNC sweatshirt at a Durham town council meeting has some merit, but the rest just sounds a little lame.

They should have worked this tee shirt into the mix.

  1. Oh man, that is an awesome summary of four years at Cameron! I'd LOVE to see Mayor Bell wear that baby...
