Councilman Jones Making Room for Some Sausage

Councilman Jones Making Room for Some Sausage


In the first of what are sure to be many, many Philadelphia-Milwaukee wagers, Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. has challenged a Milwaukee alderman to a Phillies-Brewers wager.

Jones is offering hoagies and Tastykakes. The alderman, Bob Bauman, is putting up a case of Usinger's sausage, which apparently are a local specialty. We wonder how Jones is planning on shipping his hoagies? The Tastycakes (which Bauman described as "baked snacks similar to Hostess products" in a press release) will no doubt travel just fine.

The Phillies host the Brewers Wednesday.
