Rybak collects on Vikings-Packers bet with Green Bay mayorby Elizabeth Dunbar, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — Wisconsin-made cheese, chocolate and hamburgers arrived in Minneapolis on Tuesday as part of a wager between the mayors of Minneapolis and Green Bay, Wis., over the recent Vikings-Packers game.
The Vikings beat the Packers on Oct. 5, which meant Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt had to send Wisconsin-made goodies to Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak.
In a news release, Rybak thanked Schmitt for fulfilling his end of the deal and said he's donating the Wisconsin gifts to Caring and Sharing Hands, a Minneapolis group that helps those in need.
Had the Packers won, Rybak would have sent Schmitt cheese, kettle corn and Honeycrisp apples from Minnesota.
