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.

Despite the Avalanche being long shots to win the series, Denver took Calgary up on the offer.

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.

If you head over to the official City of Calgary Twitter account right now, you’ll also see the Avs have also taken over their header photo.
