Salted Nut Roll, Beer, Popcorn, Giardiniera On Line In Mayors’ Bet On Blackhawks-Wild

(CBS) As is tradition for mayors of cities with teams in the postseason, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and St. Paul mayor Chris Coleman have made a friendly wager on the result of the Blackhawks-Wild second-round Western Conference semifinal series.

If Blackhawks win the series, Emanuel will receive a 25-pound Pearson’s salted nut roll and a six-pack of Summit beer from Saint Paul. 

If the Wild win the series, Coleman will receive a barrel of Garrett’s Popcorn, a six-pack of Half Acre beer and a jar of Chicago-style Hot Giardiniera.

Emanuel’s office announced the bet last Friday, and he looks to be en route to a victory as the Blackhawks lead the series 2-0. Game 3 is Tuesday night in Minnesota.
