Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin is publicly announcing his support of the Magic City’s new Alliance of American Football (AAF) team, the Birmingham Iron. Woodfin took to Twitter on Friday in support of the team ahead of their first game against the Memphis Express on Sunday while simultaneously proposing a friendly wager with Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland.

“Hey @MayorMemphis. Up for a challenge? If the @aafiron picks up a W this Sunday, the @aafexpress gets lunch for the A.G. Gaston Boys and Girls Club. Y’all win and the Iron donates to the @MSouthFoodBank. #ForgeOn #BeatMemphis,” Woodfin tweeted.

“Challenge accepted, @randallwoodfin! Hope the @aafiron bring their A-game against the @aafexpress because in Memphis—we don’t bluff. #memphishasmomentum #wedontbluff,” Strickland responded.

“See y’all on the field Sunday 😎 #ForgeOn,” Woodfin said wrapping up the back-and-forth with a final Iron-related pun.
