(CBS) Usually this starts up when the playoffs do, but the mayors of Chicago and Houston couldn’t wait.
Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and Houston mayor Sylvester Turner have made a food-related wager over the sporting matchups between their cities’ respective teams this weekend. On Friday, the Cubs and Astros open a three-game set in Houston, while the Texans host the Bears on Sunday afternoon.
It sounds like a total of five points are at stake on the wager scoreboard — each baseball game is worth one point, and football game is worth two. Is Houston wins, Emanuel’s office has to send along deep-dish pizza. If Chicago wins, Turner’s office has to send out some brisket.
