ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The governors of Maryland, Virginia and Wisconsin are making a friendly wager with local delicacies to support their teams in Sunday’s playoff game between the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers.

The governors announced their bets Friday night on social media.

Gov. Larry Hogan bet a bushel of Maryland blue crabs with Old Bay seasoning and a case of Flying Dog beer, saying he looks forward to enjoying Gov. Scott Walker’s Wisconsin cheese and sausage, Andes mints and Leinenkugel’s beer if the Packers lose. Gov. Terry McAuliffe tweets that he’s betting Smithfield ham and Virginia wine and peanuts in support of the Redskins.

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser and Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt are wagering too, betting D.C. “half smoke” sausages and Cannery Public Market cheese curds.
