January 21, 2011Daley bets 15-pound sandwich, other delicacies on Bears-Packers gameShare|

"Epic. All-time. Special. Historic. Can't-miss. Once-in-a-lifetime."

Chicago Bears Marketing Director Chris Hibbs was talking about the NFC Championship match-up against the Packers, but he could have been paying homage to the sandwich Manny's restaurant has put up as part of Mayor Richard Daley's wager with his counterpart in Green Bay.

The 15-pounder – that's five pounds of rye bread and 10 pounds of corned beef – held a place of honor among barbeque turkey legs, stuffed pretzels, pierogi, chicken (grilled and fried) and other entries laid out at City Hall today in honor of Chicago's gastronomic chest thumping with its historic rival to the north.

The mayor wouldn't weigh in on the Bears' chances. He applauded the team for exceeding expectations this season, but declined to predict the outcome of the Sunday afternoon game at Soldier Field. "No. I think this is going to be a great game," Daley said.

He also tipped his hat to Packers fans. "They love their football and they know their football," he said.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt has offered bear steaks, beer and wine, and a three-pound chocolate football, plus "a gift certificate or autographed football from the Packer Pro Shop," according to a news release.

If the Packers win, Schmitt will send a pound of cheese to Daley for each point in the margin of victory.

Daley will donate anything edible to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.Posted at 02:59:13 PMin Mayor of Chicago

About CloutClout has a special meaning in Chicago, where it can be a noun, a verb or an adjective. This exercise of political influence in a uniquely Chicago style was chronicled in the Tribune cartoon "Clout Street" in the early 1980s. Clout Street, the blog, offers an inside look at the politics practiced from Chicago's City Hall to the Statehouse in Springfield, through the eyes of the Tribune's political and government reporters.
