MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints meet in the NFC Divisional Playoffs on Sunday, and lawmakers from each state are getting in on the competitive fun.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy agreed to a friendly “Cake and Ice Cream” bet. If the Vikings win, Klobuchar will get the chance to eat a Louisiana king cake.

“The only thing sweeter will be the Vikings playing in the Super Bowl right here in Minnesota in February,” Klobuchar said.

If the Saints win, Sen. Kennedy will get purple-colored homemade ice cream.

The mayors of Minneapolis and New Orleans are also making a friendly wager on Sunday’s playoff game.

If the Vikings win, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu will send Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey King Cakes. If the Saints win, Frey will send Landrieu wild rice donated by Minneapolis-based Northland Visions.

The winnings will be donated to a charity of their choosing.

The winner of Sunday’s game advances to the NFC title game.

  1. In eight days our country will shut down. Our brave women and men in the military will not get paid. I’m tired of these puff Amy stories from cco. She voted against tax cuts for low and medium income families. She voted against business and the MN farmer. 18 % higher in heating costs for MN, due in part to her voting on forced energy alternatives. Eight years ago we had one of the lowest. She’s from a cold weather state. More and more federal money leaving, and fewer coming back to MN, during her time as an U S senator. All we get is a weekly campaign add for Amy, via cco.
