Gay choruses of Boston and Los Angeles make Super Bowl ‘bet’

The gay men’s choruses of the two Super Bowl cities are hoping their Patriots or Rams pull of a win in the big game.

Fans of the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams are in the middle of two weeks of posturing and trash talk ahead of the Super Bowl on Sunday. That includes the gay choruses of Boston and L.A.

The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus and Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles have made a wager about the big game, with the loser promising to honor the victor with a song.

If the Patriots take home their sixth Lombardi Trophy — which would be tied for the most in NFL history — the GMCLA will sing, record and post “Please Come to Boston” by Dave Loggins. If the Rams finally get revenge for Super Bowl XXXVI, then the BGMC will share their version of Randy Newman’s iconic “I Love L.A.”

Previously the two gay choruses made a bet on last year’s World Series, won by the Boston Red Sox.

The bet is a fun little addition to the storied Boston-L.A. sports rivalry that had its climax in the 1980s between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers.
