Thanks to reader JB, who’s done a magnificent job on prodding me to follow-up on my This Just In posts lately. He wrote me this weekend to find out whatever happened with mayoral candidate Steve Francis’ offer of a bet to Boston Mayor Thomas Menino over the Chargers/Patriots game earlier this month.

I had put in a call to the Boston mayor but never got a response. Apparently, Menino thought it was a campaign stunt. Or, maybe he was just too busy.

Charles Gallagher, Francis’ campaign consultant, told me over the weekend that Menino never responded to Francis’ overture.
