Brooklyn Cyclones General Manager Steve Cohen is confident that the Giants will win the upcoming Super Bowl against the Patriots. So confident, in fact, that he challenged a rival New England-area peer to a friendly wager, based on the outcome of the game.
Riding the bravado rooted in the recent success of the Red Sox, Celtics, and Patriots, the Lowell GM seems to think the Pats’ undefeated season is a foregone conclusion. "I look forward to sending (Cyclones GM) Steve to the field for some grounds crew work this summer," said Bawmann. "In fact, the entire Spinners staff is so confident in our New England Patriots that I'm extending the same challenge to the seven other New York teams in our league. I'm putting my entire summer schedule on the line!"
The Cyclones will take on the Spinners in Lowell, August 6-8. The Spinners come to Brooklyn August 21-23. On one of those days, one GM will have his hands full (of dirt), and will likely remember why there’s no betting in baseball.
