Greenville and Tulsa Mayor Make Bet On The Big Game

Greenville Mayor Patricia Dunn is taking a gamble on ECU beating Tulsa in Saturday's Conference USA football game. Mayor Dunn has accepted a bet from Tulsa Mayor Kathy Taylor. Here's the breakdown. If ECU loses, (Go Pirates), Mayor Dunn will have to send over a North Carolina Pine Tree. If Tulsa loses, Mayor Taylor will have to send an Oklahoma Red Bud Tree. No word on where either mayor will put the tree if they win.

    hmmm, its for a live tree, a red bud is useless cut down. It is a very attractive tree both when it blooms in spring and when the foliage comes in as the leaves look like hearts. and ummm (whom i think is the same as hmmmm) it's accepted not excepted gees. And Dave, you just as dingy. I would assume it was for a tree to plant! As stated above; a red bud is useless cut down. Did you guys learn anything in science? What did you think we were getting? A load of lumber? Your house was broken in to because you live in bad part of town? frequent break ins?....MOVE! If a house was on fire would you go in and sit down to watch TV? No you would leave. IF you live in a place where you KNOW your stuff will probably get stolen...MOVE!

    so much for the go green awareness program....lets just cut trees down for silly little bets all the time....soon there will be none. the least they could do is make eco friendly bets.

    Oh thats while my house got broken into last week, the mayor was off making bets with other towns instead of focusing on the serious issues like making greenville safer. ill think about that the next time i get held up.

    you are right somebody mixed up some wording between the front page and this page. also i would like to see the pirates win but she might as well start sending that tree.

    Are they planting a tree or cutting one down. If ECU wins way are we sending them a tree?

    Mayor Dunn "excepted" a bet? Does that mean that she made an 'exception' and bet or did she accept the bet? =)
