Speaking of outrageous Super Bowl bets, for the second year in a row, a most culturally refined wager has been placed on the game.
If the Green Bay Packers win, Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art will send Pierre Renoir’s “Bathers with a Crab” (circa 1890s) to Milwaukee as a temporary loan. If the Pittsburgh Steelers win, the Milwaukee Art Museum will loan Gustave Caillebotte's “Boating on the Yerres” (1877) to Pittsburgh.
In that case — Go Packers!
