Houston, Chicago mayors make brisket, pizza bet on weekend sports

Sylvester Turner and Rahm Emanuel (AP )

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner made a "friendly wager" on Twitter today with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel over this weekend's games between the Houston Texans and the Chicago Bears and the Houston Astros and the Chicago Cubs.

As Turner outlined in one tweet, each baseball game is worth one point and the winner of the football game gets two points.

At stake? Pizza for a Houston win and brisket for a Chicago win.

Emanuel accepted the wager, and seems a bit confident in the whole thing, tweeting, "You're on. And we're hungry!"

We'll be following the wager and will have the results as they become available.
