The Mayor of Borough of East Rutherford, New Jersey (Mayor James L. Cassella), has challenged the Board Of Selectmen of Foxborough, Massachusetts to a bet about Superbowl XLII. He bet pizzas. Our Selectmen considered New England Clam Chowder from the Lafayette House, pizza from Foxborough House of Pizza, or food from all around town (enough for seven people). While discussing this challenge, there were many suggestions from around the Selectmen’s table tonight including the wearing of Patriots shirts while feasting on Foxborough food or Giants hats while dining on New Jersey pizza. Selectmen Sullivan will be negotiating the final bet with the Mayor tomorrow.
More items from tonight’s meeting:
- We may not be the smallest Town home to National Football League team, but may be the smallest town home to an American Football Conference team!
- During tonight’s meeting, Selectman Feeney “put on notice” the cities and mayors Of Boston and Brockton regarding their use of the term “City of Champions“….how about “Town Of Champions”, “Hometown Of Champions”, or something that reflects the small, town feeling and qualities we strive to retain and preserve?
- They are currently discussing the ‘Dog Park’… .
