The best Super Bowl bet ever

Everyone knows governors and mayors make bets all of the time over the outcome of playoff games and championships.  It usually involves the loser wearing the winning jersey and a gift exchanged to another city but this bet is between two art galleries.

The Indianapolis Museum of Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art have a Super Bowl bet…the loser loans a significant piece of art to the winner for three months. The directors of the two museums trash talked back and forth via email and Twitter before agreeing on the paintings to be loaned.
