It's on: Here are the terms agreed to between Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Toronto Mayor Jonh Tory for Saturday's MLS Cup.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has accepted a challenge from Toronto Mayor John Tory over the outcome of this weekend’s MLS Cup soccer match between the Sounders and the Toronto Football Club.
In a Twitter exchange, Tory agreed that if his football club lost he would send a gift basket to Durkan containing Tim Horton’s coffee, a St. Lawrence peameal bacon sandwich and maple syrup. He also agreed to wear a Sounders scarf and to have the city’s “Toronto” sign lighted emerald green in the event of a loss.
For Seattle’s part, Durkan said that if the Sounders lost, she would send Tory a basket with Starbucks coffee, Beecher’s homemade cheese, Oberto jerky and Totem Smokehouse salmon, wear a Toronto FC scarf and have City Hall awash in red light.
The mayors also both agreed to donate $100 to charity for every goal made by their team.
The match will be played at BMO Field in Toronto on at 1 p.m. Saturday on ESPN.
