FOXBOROUGH — Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock have made a friendly wager for Sunday’s AFC Championship game between the Patriots and the Broncos.

If the Patriots win, Hancock will wear a Patriots jersey at the US Conference of Mayors next week in Washington, D.C., and ship some green chile, a hoodie, hat, and skis from Icelantic Skis in Denver.

If the Broncos win, Walsh will wear a Broncos jersey to the conference, send 5 pounds of chocolate turtles from Phillips Candy House in Dorchester, and donate some locally inscribed books to Denver Public Libraries.


In a video posted to Instagram, Walsh says “I think you know what number” when referring to the jersey.
