Canisius President John J. Hurley is heightening the excitement in advance of the National Football League’s AFC Championship game between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs, scheduled for Sunday, January 24 at 6:40 p.m. on CBS.  This morning, he wagered a friendly bet with his counterpart President Rev. Thomas Curran, SJ, at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO. 

The bet, however, won’t include the expected shipment of Buffalo chicken wings or Kansas City barbecue to the losing college. Instead, the wager will put the pride of each city on the line:  If (and when!) the Kansas City Chiefs fall to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, President Curran must agree to don a Buffalo Bills facemask for a full day, during the week of January 25. Should the Buffalo Bills be defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs, President Hurley must capitulate and wear a facemask of the winning team for a full day.  To be sure each holds up his end of the bargain, the losing president must also post a picture of himself on social media wearing the opposing team’s mask.

All the more reason to be sure we cheer on the Bills this weekend!
