Hoffman Estates Mayor William D. McLeod and Green Bay Mayor James J. Schmitt of Green Bay have a bet on the game. If the Slaughter wins, McLeod will receive Green Bay-related items, including steaks and a Green Bay-opoly game. If the Blizzard wins, Schmitt will receive a Craftsman tool set from Hoffman Estates-based Sears, a men's grooming kit from Mary Kay cosmetics and memorabilia from the Village of Hoffman Estates.
A pregame event with Slaughter coach and 1985 Super Bowl Champion Bears great, Steve McMichael. A pregame rally will be held at 6:15 p.m. in the tailgate section of the Sears Centre (SW parking lot) where a large dump truck will be available for every Slaughter fan to shed, shred and trash their Green Bay paraphernalia. Slaughter fans who bring any green & yellow item displaying the words "Green Bay" to be tossed into the garbage truck and crushed will receive a free ticket to the May 28 Slaughter home game.
