Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh is indeed a man of his word.
Walsh sported a Denver Broncos Peyton Manning jersey after losing a friendly wager with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock following the Patriots' 26-16 loss to the Broncos in AFC Championship.
Walsh had bet the Patriots would beat the Broncos, stipulating that either mayor would wear the other team's jersey and send along some delectables from each city. Walsh also agreed to send 5 pounds of chocolate turtles from Phillips Candy House in Dorchester, as well as donate some locally inscribed books to Denver Public Libraries.
