Minneapolis mayor pays off bet with Green Bay mayor

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (WKOW) -- Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak paid off his friendly wager with Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt that the two made over the Packers-Vikings playoff battle.

The Packers beat the Vikings, so Rybak sent Schmitt sausages from Minneapolis restaurant Butcher and the Boar.

Schmitt had wagered cheese from Green Bay, root beer and candy if the Packers lost.

In a news release, Rybak says, "We lost fair and square, so we're sending the sausages."
