Chicago's Lipinski, Green Bay Ribble make Bears, Packers bet

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--With the Bears and Packers facing each other on Sunday, Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.) placed a friendly wager with Rep Reid Ribble (R-Wisc.) who represents Green Bay.

If the Bears win, Ribble will wear a Bears tie for a day in Washington and deliver some special Wisconsin treats to Lipinski's office: bratwursts from Maplewood Meats in Green Bay and fried cheese curds from Scray's Cheese in De Pere.

If the Packers win, Lipinski will wear a Packers tie and send Ribble pizza from the Home Run Inn, the famous Southwest Side pizzeria.
