The mayors of Green Bay and Minneapolis are literally stepping up to the plate and placing a friendly bet on Saturday’s playoff game between the Vikings and Packers.
The wager? Green Bay cheese versus Minneapolis’ finest sausage.
Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt is wagering some of Wisconsin’s finest cheese, candies and root beer on the Packers, while Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is willing to bet some fine sausage from local restaurant Butcher and the Boar on the Vikings.
The Packers are 9.5-point favorites over the Vikings on Saturday night at Lambeau Field.
