Friendly playoff game wager between mayors to involve local music

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin today placed a friendly wager over the outcome of Sunday’s NFC championship game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints, wagering each other CDs that represent each City's thriving local music scene.

The independent Minneapolis music store The Electric Fetus will donate three CDs of Minneapolis music to the City of New Orleans on the remote chance that the Saints win on Sunday. When the Vikings win, however, Mayor Nagin will send the City of Minneapolis three CDs of New Orleans music.
