This is about as nerdy as any Super Bowl-related activity can get. The Enoch Pratt has made a bet with the San Francisco Public Library.
If the Ravens win, San Francisco Public Library City Librarian Luis Herrera will have to recite Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” in the atrium of the SFPL Main Library wearing a Ravens jersey. If the 49ers win, Pratt Library CEO Carla Hayden will have to recite George Sterling’s “The Cool, Grey City of Love” in the Central Library Main Hall wearing a 49ers jersey. And the results will be posted to YouTube.
I just hope the Ravens can keep their heads in the game, with everything that’s riding on their performance.
