Friendly wager pays off for Mayor Pope

Friendly wager pays off for Mayor Pope

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Remember the Sweet 16 wager between Lubbock Mayor Dan Pope and West Lafayette, Indiana Mayor John Dennis? Today Mayor Dennis made good on his word.

Mayor Pope promised brisket from Tom & Bingo's BBQ if Texas Tech lost in the NCAA tournament to Purdue. If Purdue lost to Texas Tech, the West Lafayette mayor would send root beer from West Lafayette's Triple XXX Family Restaurant.

The root beer was delivered by the owners of the business to Mayor Pope today. Although Mayor Dennis lost, he jokingly asked in a video that Mayor Pope send him some of that brisket anyway.

Mayor Pope says that at tomorrow's event recognizing April 26 as Red Raider Men's Basketball day, they may have to have a root beer toast.
