Libraries make bets on Super Bowl

Pittsburgh and Milwaukee have more riding on tonight's game than just the pride of their hometown teams.

From The Associated Press:
MILWAUKEE — The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Milwaukee Public Library are now getting in on the Super Bowl bets.
If the Green Bay Packers win on Sunday, the Carnegie staff will send an assortment of Pennsylvania cheeses and pierogies and Sarris chocolates along with a promise that the life-size cut-out of Andrew Carnegie or the state of library benefactor Julius Bernd will wear a Packers jersey.
If the Pittsburgh Steelers win, the Milwaukee library staff will send an assortment of Wisconsin cheeses, chocolates from Kehr’s Candies and a promise that the Benjamin Franklin statue at Central Library will wear a Steelers jersey.
The libraries are required to share a photo as proof the wager is satisfied.
