Phillies-Brewers food bets

Sigh. It must be the playoffs.

Phillies-Brewers food bets


Another day, another wager regarding the Phillies-Brewers series.

City Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. and Milwaukee Alderman Robert J. Bauman bet Usinger’s sausages against two hoagies and a variety pack of Tastykakes.
Today's big bet involves WXPN's Jim McGuinn and 88Nine RadioMilwaukee's Scott Mullins, who both work afternoons. The stakes are brats against cheesesteaks. Winner gets bragging rights and can “take over” the loser’s station for one full hour – in effect, they’ll play guest DJ on the other station for one hour. They kicked off the rivalry this afternoon by playing songs by artists from their respective cities. Mullins played "You're the One" by Kings Go Forth and McGuinn played "The Ark" by Dr. Dog.
