The sign of any great sporting event is a traditional mayor’s bet, and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre have a deal in place ahead of the NHL Winter Classic on New Year’s Day. 

The bet will require the losing city’s mayor to read a list on camera of the top 10 best things about the winner’s city, something which will surely be a painful experience for the bitter rivals. 

Mayor Walsh has already lost a bet between the two cities once when the Bruins lost to the Canadiens in the second round of the 2014 playoffs. Walsh was forced to fly a Canadiens flag over City Hall, and he indeed begrudgingly flew what might have been the world’s tiniest Canadiens flag next to the American and Massachusetts flags that day.
