Sunday, Titletown, U.S.A. and America's capital will go to battle in the NFC Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. The two city's mayors are making a yummy bet about the game.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt and Washington, D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser wagered some of their area's favorite foods on the Packers' game against Washington.

“I’m delighted to showcase our world famous cheese curds in this friendly wager,” said Schmitt in a statement released by the City of Washington. The curds would come from the Cannery Public Market.

“After we smoke Washington, the people of Green Bay will dine on the half smoke sausages offered up by Mayor Bowser.”

My home team has been on a roll lately, and I look forward to cheering them on to victory against Green Bay,” said Bowser.

“And when they do win, I look forward to enjoying some of that fine Wisconsin cheese while saying: You like that!”

Additionally, the losing mayor must wear a t-shirt of the winning team at a community mentoring event.
