DC and Seattle mayors bet on playoff game outcome

Thursday - 1/3/2013, 12:40pm  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Washington's mayor and the mayor of Seattle have a bet on the outcome of the Sunday's playoff game between the Redskins and the Seahawks.

The mayor with the losing team must fly the victor's flag over his city's city hall for a day. D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says he's confident it will be Seattle flying Washington's flag. He says the Seahawks have not won a road playoff game since 1983. But the Redskins have also lost their last two playoff appearances against the Seahawks in 2005 and 2007.

In October the District of Columbia had to fly the St. Louis flag over the city's man government building for a day. That's after the Washington Nationals lost the National League Division Series to the St. Louis Cardinals.
