Wager w/ @mayorsamadams on 2 matches between @soundersfc & @timbersfc: losing Mayor’s staff 2 wear winning team’s scarf 4 a day. Not worriedless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply


Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and his Portland counterpart Sam Adams are getting involved in the big Sounders-Timbers rivalry, starting at 8 p.m. Saturday. The two made a wager (as detailed above in McGinn’s tweet) that the loser of the two-game series, which concludes July 10, has to wear the other team’s scarf for a day.

Official tiebreakers, according to this link, are as follows: 1) goal differential, 2) away goals, 3) who is ranked higher in the Western Conference standings at the end of the year.

Adams tweeted a playful response and picture here.
