Mayor Michael Bloomberg has thrown down a challenge to Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt over the outcome of Sunday's playoff game between the Giants and the Packers.

If the Giants win, Schmitt has to send local cheese curds and Titletown’s Sno-Cap root beer to New York. But if the Packers win, Bloomberg has to send Junior’s cheesecake and salsa from the Brooklyn Salsa Company.

The mayor has declared today Big Blue Friday in honor of the Giants. Bloomberg will wear the color and encourages other New Yorkers to do the same.
