This one had better go better for Regina mayor Michael Fougere than the last CFL playoff bet he made with Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman.
Bowman went to Twitter to explain the bet Friday afternoon.
Game on! Friendly wager on @CFL Western Final w/ Regina's @MayorFougere. Within 5 mins of the game ending losing Mayor (aka Mayor Fougere) will upload new Twitter & FB profile pic wearing other team's jersey…& leave up for 1 wk!

Fougere was quick to come back.
The best part of @sskroughriders winning this weekend's Western Final will be winning the Western Final at home. The second best part will be seeing @Mayor_Bowman green with envy! When the Bombers lose his Twitter/FB pic will be him in a Riders jersey for a week! #BEL13VE https://t.co/oWIDLEFS22

Both remember that after last year’s Western Semi-Final win by Winnipeg over Saskatchewan that the lights of Mosaic Stadium were lit up in Bomber colours after a 28-13 win.
