Ellen offers wager to Oprah ahead of Bears game

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is rooting for the Green Bay Packers this weekend and wagering Oprah Winfrey's network on the game.

Ellen says she loves Chicago but chose to cheer on the Pack because "they send me presents." Ellen said linebacker Clay Matthews, a.k.a. "the guy with the long hair that I am just crazy about," sent her a gift. She said she also loves Aaron Rogers and the fact that Wisconsin is "shaped like an oven mitt."

Ellen said, assuming Oprah is rooting for the Bears, Ellen offered her a wager.

"If the Bears win, I will replace my Ellen mug with an Oprah mug for one day," Ellen said. "If the Packers win, you will give me your new network."

Oprah launched her Oprah Winfrey Network earlier this year.

It's unclear whether Oprah will accept Ellen's bet.
