STATEMENT: Tallahassee’s Gillum, Newton’s Warren Make a Wager on Jaguars-Patriots Game
Tallahassee, Florida — Mayor Andrew Gillum, a proud Floridian and candidate for Governor, and former Newton, Massachusetts Mayor Setti Warren, and candidate for Governor of the Bay State, have each wagered a case of locally-brewed craft beer on the AFC Championship Game. Mayor Gillum will wager a collection of Tallahassee’s craft beers, and Mayor Warren will wager a case of White Lion Pale Ale, from the White Lion Brewing Company in Springfield, Mass. It’s a black-owned business and was the first craft brewery in Springfield.
“The Jaguars might be upstarts, but believe me, the ‘Teal is Real’ and they are going to shock the world and topple the New England Patriots. The Jaguars are making history in 2018 and I’m looking forward to Mayor Warren begrudgingly shouting out ‘Duuuuuvaaaaal’ when he sends our winnings to the Sunshine State,” said Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
“If I could offer my friend Mayor Gillum some advice, never bet against Tom Brady. I realize that the people of North Florida are not as used to watching their team play football in late January as we in New England are, but I hope you make the most of Saturday’s championship game because I’m confident that the Jaguars season will end then,” said former Newton Mayor Setti Warren.
