It’s official! The Selectmen of Foxborough and the Mayor and borough Council of East Rutherford have wagered on the outcome of Superbowl XLII.
Five pizzas (or “pies” as some call the tasty food staple) from East Rutherford’s Park Tavern if the Patriots win or clam chowder (also known to many as “New England Clam Chowdah”) from Foxborough’s Lafayette House if the Giants win. Also included in the bet: Foxborough Selectmen will wear Giants hats for one entire meeting or East Rutherford’s Mayor (and staff) and Council will wear Patriots hats for a day.
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’… .
Help Governor Patrick give the hometown team an excellent sendoff on their trip to the Superbowl. Parking and admission to the 10:00 AM event is free. Lots open an hour before the event. Tailgating will not be permitted. (^)
We hope you win!

Have you ever been to Indianapolis? I haven’t and am wondering “What the hell is there to do in Indianapolis and Indiana? (Probably more than in Foxborough, MA, but wanderlust just drives some folks spirits enough that they’ll be heading there some time!)
For those of us who have never been there – or for those who wish to travel down memory lane, here is some info about this little hamlet:
This reminds me of all the “Indiana Jones” movies! Harrison Ford recently said he’s signed up to do sequel #3 (at the tender age of 60-something) and that Sean Connery just might be back as his dad! Now that would be great 🙂
We know you can do it!
