Mayor Rybak, Green Bay Mayor Schmitt Place Friendly Wager on Saturday’s Wild-Card Game

At stake: Minneapolis sausages vs. Green Bay cheese

January 3, 2013 (MINNEAPOLIS) — Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt announced today have placed a friendly wager on the outcome of Saturday’s NFC wild-card game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers.

Mayor Rybak will wager house-made sausages from Minneapolis restaurant Butcher and the Boar, recently named Restaurant of the Year by the Star Tribune. Mayor Schmitt will wager BelGioioso cheese, along with Sno-cap Root Beer from Titletown Brewing Company and Beernsten’s Candies, all from Green Bay.

“Three hundred and sixty-two days a year, I represent a city near the border with many wonderful people from Wisconsin. Saturday night, however, my blood will run purple and Viking horns will spear the Cheeseheads,” Mayor Rybak said.

“I’m looking forward to giving new meaning to ‘Skol, Vikings!’ with a good chug of Green Bay root beer and a side of Green Bay cheese,” Mayor Rybak continued.
