Six-packs and money rarely change hands when politicians bet on sporting events. The bet between New York Sen. Charles Schumer and Wisconsin Sen. Herb Kohl is no exception.
Only cheese and cheesecake are on the line.
If the Giants win the NFC Championship game Sunday, Schumer will receive a block of Wisconsin cheese. More likely, when the Packers win, Kohl will get Junior's Cheesecake.
Even their trash-talking is somehow off:
“The Giants will only feel the heat against Green Bay at Lambeau Field,” Kohl said.
“Brooklyn may have sent Green Bay a gift in Vince Lombardi, but the generosity ends there,” Schumer said.
Still, Wisconsin beer and New York cheesecake: Life doesn't get much better.
