NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Nashville Mayor John Cooper has made a friendly wager with Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas over Twitter.

In return, Mayor Lucas is wagering Kansas City barbecue and other barbecue-themed products made or sourced in the Kansas City area.

“The Titans are favored over the Chiefs by anyone who knows better,” said Mayor Cooper. “Our team has been dominant since the mid-season. They’re primed, ready, and hungry – about as hungry as my good friend Mayor Lucas will be when it turns out he won’t be receiving any of Nashville’s fabulous goodies. The Chiefs haven’t been to the Super Bowl in 50 years. The good news is, there’s always fantastic food being served up right here in Music City.”

Mayor Cooper’s wager features products around Nashville’s famous hot chicken, which also includes vegan goods in honor of 15 Titans players who have recently switched to a plant-based diet, including linebacker Derrick Morgan and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jurrell Casey. is now with you on the go!
