When your kid spills a bunch of goldfish crackers in the car, it doesn’t matter how well you clean it; you’ll be digging little orange crumbs out of the seats for years. And so it is, apparently, with Super Bowl bets. The Sun just reported that San Francisco mayor Edwin M. Lee is coming to Baltimore on Friday to complete the day of service he owes Stephanie Rawlings-Blake from their Super Bowl wager.

Despite wishing it had gone the other way, Lee said he’s looking “forward to cracking some Baltimore crab and joining AmeriCorps in the Service Bowl.”

Yes, this is nice for our city — all this out-of-town love and grudging respect. But I’m starting to feel bad for San Franciscans. Anyone who dies in that city in the next few decades is going to need their estate scoured for unpaid Super Bowl bets, before any inheritances are disbursed.
