Steelers Vs. Broncos: Pittsburgh, Denver Mayors Place Friendly Bet

Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Denver mayor Michael Hancock have a bet on the outcome of their cities Steelers vs. Broncos NFL playoff matchup this weekend.

If the Steelers lose, Ravenstahl will have to wear a Broncos jersey in front of a Pittsburgh landmark and do the Tebow.

If the Broncos lose, Hancock will wear a Steelers jersey and a Terrible Towel at a public event.

Ravenstahl's end of the bargain is a lot more creative and humiliating, but that's probably in keeping with the respective teams' actual odds of winning. Ravenstahl has a pretty good shot at winning this bet. Lets hope we don't have to see Ravenstahl Tebowing.

Ravenstahl's last high-profile attempt at injecting himself into Pittsburgh's football culture, by the way, was in the new Batman movie, where he made a cameo in scene in a game the fake Steelers were playing at the fake Heinz Field. Ravenstahl appears as a kicker ... for the other team. It's good he picked the right side this time.

I'm just kidding, of course.
