The official City of Calgary Twitter account just may have jinxed the Flames in Round 1 with a wager against the City of Denver.
Feeling understandably confident given the Flames topped the Western Conference during the regular season, the city account proposed a friendly bet.
Hey @CityofDenver, how about a friendly wager?

Despite the Avalanche being long shots to win the series, Denver took Calgary up on the offer.
Yeah, we’re game 😊. If @Avalanche win the series, you hoist a delicious Colorado craft beer, change your cover photo to an image of our choice and tweet “Denver is a REAL hockey town.” See you on the ice tonight! #GoAvsGo #StanleyCup

By now you know the result of the series – the Flames lost in five games – leaving Denver with the last laugh.

Well, the City of Calgary has honoured its word and “joined” the Avalanche bandwagon for the second round.

People seemed generally impressed with Calgary for honouring the bet.
💜 true to their word. Cheers, Calgary!
