Video: WBEZ and KUOW wager leftover pledge drive gifts for playoff game

January 11, 2011

This week, the Bears will play the Seattle Seahawks at Soldier Field in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. This is the time of the year where city mayors will get together and wager home-grown items to each other based on the football game. We decided that we too want to put our civic pride on the line and make a bet with our sister station in Seattle KUOW. We believe the Bears will win. We're willing to back that up with pledge drive premiums. Left-over pledge drive premiums. Expect KUOW to respond with their wager soon. And check back this week as we size up our competition from the Pacific Northwest. Not just football, but who has the better tacos? Who has bigger celebrities? Which town has better currency exchanges?
