The Super Bowl is the biggest event of the year for many — but it’s an even bigger deal this year in Audubon, where Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was a multisport high school star.
To honor Flacco’s local connection, the borough is planning a “Big Game Party” to watch the Super Bowl starting at 5 p.m. Sunday, and Audubon Mayor John Ward has made a wager with the town where Flacco’s counterpart — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — played high school football.
The Big Game Party is sponsored by the Audubon Celebration Committee, which plans the Fourth of July Parade and the Audubon Fathers’ Association and raises money for scholarships. It will take place at The Kove, 20 W. Atlantic Ave., Audubon. The $20 tickets will cover entry to watch the game on numerous TVs and a buffet. There will be $2 draft beer specials.
“We are extremely happy for Joe and all of his accomplishments and want to show the world how proud we are of him at this event,” Mayor Ward said in a news release.
In a separate release, Ward also announced his gentlemen’s wager with Mayor John Lazar from Turlock, Calif. Under the terms of the bet, the mayor who supported the losing team will be required to wear a jersey from the winning team to the next council meeting.
