Oh, it's on, Hawks fans!

Mayor Rahm Emanuel placed a friendly bet with Mayor Chris Coleman of St. Paul, Minn., on the Hawks vs. Wild series that starts Friday.

"In the unlikely case that things don't go our way, I am prepared to send a six-pack of our hoppy pride and joy: Half Acre Daisy Cutter, a barrel of Chicago's own Garrett's Popcorn, and some of our Chicago-style Giardiniera that can spice up any casserole," Mayor Emanuel said in a news release.

What will Chicago get from St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman? A 25-pound Pearson's salted nut roll and a six-pack of Summit beer.

"I am excited to take part in this wager with our friends from the north," he said. "I have full confidence that our mighty Blackhawks will be victorious in this series."
