The losing mayor of the hoops game has to take the winning mayor to lunch in the winner’s city, wearing the winning team’s jersey.
So it looks like Glenn Jacobs will be sporting some Kentucky blue.
The Wildcats pummeled the Volunteers with a final score of 86-69, the Cats took control from the tip and maintained it the entire game.
Congratulations, @MayorGorton and @KentuckyMBB on an outstanding performance. Looking forward to the rematch on 3/2 at @TBArena…and to lunch in Lexington. #GBO
