Mayor Menino Has Moment of Prescience

The food-truck-lovin’, soft-drink-hatin’ mayor got two things right over the weekend: Our Patriots are better than the Broncos, and our beer is better than Denver’s. He and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock sparred good-naturedly in the days leading up to the big game, with Menino declaring “We have a team; they have one player who wants to pray.” (Oh, gee, whoever could that be?)

So confident was Menino that he opted to place a beer bet against Colorado. “We have the best. I mean, you know, Colorado beer? It hasn’t even made it east yet. Sam Adams has made it to the west and Harpoon has made it out there, but Colorado Rocky beer? Uck,” he said at the time.

Well, Menino was proved right. The Patriots did win, and our beer really is the best. Of course, in his bluster, Menino might have forgotten that he recently told the Herald that he doesn’t drink at all.
