Lucas and Houston mayor make a friendly wager on Chiefs-Texans game with BBQ at stake


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The stakes are high in the Chiefs’ playoff game this Sunday against the Texans. There’s Kansas City barbecue on the line.

Mayor Quinton Lucas is confident Kansas City will take home the win this weekend. In fact, he’s so sure he made a bet with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.

In this friendly wager, Lucas agreed to send a case of Boulevard beer and some Gates BBQ to Houston if the Texans manage to beat the Chiefs. We’re guessing Chiefs Kingdom can agree that won’t happen, so Lucas won’t have to worry about giving up any barbecue.

On his end, Turner bet some authentic Mexican food from an award-winning restaurant called Irma’s Original.

BUT we are looking forward to sampling some of that Kansas City BBQ when the @HoustonTexans take home the win!” the city tweeted when they accepted the bet.
