Pritzker, Pennsylvania Governor Wager on NFL Game

Illinois Gov.-elect J.B. Pritzker and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf made a friendly wager over Sunday's football game between the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Pritzker said before the game Sunday that he made the bet because "Here in Illinois, we all know" the Bears would win the game at Soldier Field.

Pritzker bet Wolf that if the Bears could defeat the defending Super Bowl champions, the governor of Pennsylvania would send cheesesteaks with cheese and fried onions from Tony Luke's in South Philadelphia.

But thanks to a last-second Bears three-point attempt that hit the uprights, the Eagles prevailed, meaning Pritzker will now send Wolf some Eli's Cheesecake from Chicago.
