Via the Office of Mayor Jenny Durkan:
Seattle (September 6) – Seattle Mayor Jenny A. Durkan and Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser made a wager today on the outcome of the 2018 WNBA Finals between the Seattle Storm and the Washington Mystics.
If the Mystics win (they won’t), Mayor Durkan will send a basket of goodies from Seattle’s women owned businesses including Cupcake Royale, Fremont Brewing, Fuel Coffee, Fran’s Chocolates, Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream, Rachel’s Ginger Beer, and Glassybaby votives in Storm colors. If When the Seattle Storm prevail, Mayor Bowser would send a basket of goodies including flowers from Lee’s Flower and Card Shop, CIVIC Vodka, Baked by Yael cakepops, and half-smokes from Ben’s Chili Bowl. The losing mayor will also wear the opposing team’s jersey.
“The other Washington won’t be able to handle current legend Sue Bird and legends in the making like Jewell Loyd (Notre Dame), MVP Breanna Stewart and an entire team of can-do, get it done players. Seattle has the best players, the best teams, and the best fans in the country, and we can’t wait to celebrate our third championship,” said Mayor Durkan.
“Seattle or DC? Obviously DC,” said Mayor Bowser. “We’ve dealt with our fair share of storms in DC this summer, and we’re prepared to handle one more. I look forward to cheering on Delle Donne and the rest of the Mystics as they bring another championship and gift basket to the District.”
The first game of the best-of-five series will take place Friday, September 7 at 6:00 PM PT in Seattle.
