Pittsburgh Mayor Gainey accepts Steelers bet against Cleveland mayor

PITTSBURGH — There’s more than bragging rights on the line. Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey and Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb engaged in a little playful banter ahead of Thursday night’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns.

Bibb took to Twitter, inviting Gainey to make a wager on the game. The price: popcorn.

Bibb offered up his hometown Campbell’s Sweets Factory, while Gainey, accepting, wagered Pittsburgh Popcorn.

Gainey and Bibb were both sworn in as mayor in January. At 35, Bibb is Cleveland’s first “millenial” mayor.

The Steelers and Browns both head into tonight’s game with one win and one loss. Coverage starts at 6 p.m. and kick off is at 8:15 p.m. right here on WPXI.
