Vancouver and Chicago mayors wager salmon, cupcakes in battle for hockey cup @NHLdotcom

VANCOUVER, B.C. - The mayors of Vancouver and Chicago are facing off in a hockey playoff wager that involves cupcakes, jumbo hot dogs and "Bad Girl" chocolates.

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson says Canucks fans are pumped to see their team's victory over the St. Louis Blues and can't wait to take on the windy city.

Robertson is wagering several items including smoked B.C. salmon, the "Bad Girl" chocolates made by a local company and 2010 Olympics gear.

He says he's looking forward to two dozen Blackhawks cupcakes from Chicago Mayor Richard Daley when, not if, the Canucks beat that city in the series starting Thursday night in Vancouver.

Along with the jumbo hot dogs, Daley is putting up Polish sausage, two bottles of red sangria and a case of cheese.

Robertson says he was hoping Daley would throw in some shaving cream, which he'll need to get rid of his playoff beard after the Canucks bring home the Stanley Cup.
