Even Aesthetes Are Getting In On Super Bowl Action

Too sweet for Indianapolis?Last week Slate’s Josh Levin tweeted that a “Colts-Saints matchup would generate the most-lopsided mayoral food bet in Super Bowl history.” (The bet wound up being King Cake, beignets, and cafe au lait vs. Indianapolis shrimp cocktail, which seems a little slack on New Orleans’ part, but, you know, fucking Nagin.) A far more interesting wager, however, is happening between the directors of the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art. As a correspondent noted, it is likely the only time you will see the words “sentimental blancmange” in relation to Super Bowl speculation. Also: Go Saints.
